FAR AFIELD

FAR AFIELD

The regular Postal guy

Asked me if the young geese could fly…

I couldn’t see

Them hiding from me,

Goose Management probably was why.

While closing gates I spotted

The goose family out-trotted…

Their plumage was there

To soon take to air,

Exactly as Management plotted!

Soon all will be chased away,

Momma with a broken wing may stay…

Perhaps picked up

By a rent-a-goose truck,

And given a breeding okay?

WHAT A PITY!

WHAT A PITY!

One goose family has six

Little darlings marching betwixt….

Their Mom and Dad,

For some it is sad

Knowing that soon they’ll be nixed.

Atlantic Goose Management here,

Will drive off our flocks with fear….

They’re siccing dogs*

To clear bogs,

Some of us will be shedding tears!

–Jonathan Caswell

* Or…”sicking the dogs”…either spelling is used.

OUR GEESE GETTING VISITORS?

OUR GEESE GETTING VISITORS?

 An Atlantic Goose Management

Representative will be sent…

To visit “our” geese,

Will he come in peace–

Will the outcome we resent?

Maybe the one with broken wing

Will be kept for zoo visiting…

She’s so far survived

Several years, stayed alive,

Despite snow and everything!

Or maybe he’ll take a goose census,

Combining with numbers “immensus”…

Migration flyways

Change often these days,

As habitat change commences.
