GOOSE BABYSITTING SERVICES**
(**with information found at www.preservewildlife.com/geeseworld.htm )
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!
