THEY WERE SWARMING

THEY WERE SWARMING

I don’t know what the problem was,

But a lot of blue lights* flashed,

Nearly every mile or two

Some poor guy’s bad luck hatched…

Though some had vehicles towed off

I’m glad I wasn’t one,

I’ve spent my time on the roadside

And at night it isn’t fun!

* In Massachusetts…that means THE COPS!!!!  🙂

“SCHEDULUS INTERRUPTUS”

“SCHEDULOUS INTERRUPTUS”

 

The Guard wants to close Gates,

But geese and their younger mates…

Are wandering

And pondering

At feeding frenzied rates.

AHA! they’ve suddenly swarmed,

Inside as if warned…

It’s growing dark

And time to park

In the pond before predators swarm!

The gates are closed at last,

Despite flock-sized droppings cast…

He watched his stepping

By careful schlepping,

So his shoes wouldn’t stick fast!
