Territory - Poem by brian roy skyers

What an amazing site to behold
A branch of nature to witness unfold
In a picturesque manicured garden
A humming bird feeds leisurely
Apparently transgressing an unseen line
He is set upon by a large butterfly
No chance of catching him, but it'll try
An amazing chase with a fluttering gait
Such a thing I couldn't contemplate
Natures rules apply for all, even insects
To control territory and to protect
This bird has no teeth to eat fruit
But this butterfly will have none of it
And sets off in hot pursuit
Neither has this butterfly a taste for flesh
So conflict will amount to a safe contest.
