THE BROKEN WING GANG

THE BROKEN WING GANG

 

This group is terrorizing

Our grounds these cold winter days…

They’re out to see what they can snatch,

To see if thievery pays.

The broken wing is Momma,

Who often winters alone…

But this year the kids and their Dad

She insisted would stay around home.

They’ve actually been pretty good of late

Until this sunny day…

Yes pretty good for a half-dozen geese

Who anoint the sidewalks with grey.

The broken wing gang has broken out,

Leaving webbed foot prints in the snow…

Not much green grass so this too will pass

‘Til later in the year, or so!
