'And This Year's Winner Is.....'...Who Cares? ....[Birds Seeking Food; Very Short; Humour/Humor]


The sparrows line up for their TAKE-off
on twigs strong enough not to BREAK off.
The time is drawing NEAR....
for event of the YEAR.....,
when crumbs are thrown out from the BAKE-off.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

a fanciful idea. i like both crumbs and birds. i may have been watching sparrows finding bread crumbs or birdseed outside my apartment window with snow surrounding them.
