GOOSE BABYSITTING SERVICES**

Research on geese led towards,

The naming of gosling hordes…

Shepherded by a few

Adults who knew

The best way to rear these wards.

The name of this horde is “crèche”

A giant kindergarten to mesh…

Into the flock,

Although parents knock

“Kidnapping” of their kids afresh!

Two or three dominant ones

Take charge and the gosling crowd runs…

While parents stand by

Unwilling to try

Taking back their own daughters and sons.

‘Though one of the hordes I’ve seen

May be due to one pair’s dream….

To fill the earth

By multiples of birth,

So many their efforts have weaned!
