The Bird-bardierThe Bird-bardier (based on actual events)
By Andrew Chandler
A bird attacked me yesterday.
I didnt even flinch.
I hit the floor and closed my eyes.
I think it was a finch.
Mind my business all day long.
I never saw it coming.
It didnt screech or tweet or squawk.
It wasnt even humming.
Straight for my face it dove and swooped,
And unprovoked was it.
A mass of down and up it went,
My pants I nearly soiled.
Most surprising is the fact
Behind closed doors was I.
In my office, not alone,
My kindred both close by.
The wife she screamed and held up high
Our boy, a baby still.
All the while the fowl destroyed
My ships on window sill.
My duty as protector rose.
I grabbed a blanket blue.
And shooed the beast from whence it came,
Back where from whence it flew.
The crisis thus averted I
Embraced my family dear.
And vowed from that day and beyond
To keep them safe and near
From any avian threat or brood
Who dare invade our neighborhood.
Keep in Touch!
