We took our walk as birds began to chirp
My friend was lightly scratching with his paw
Until a pest decided to usurp
Serenity with one bombastic CAW!
This harbinger of winter glided by
Reminding me that soon the snow would fall
For every year these ebon hecklers fly
To roost in our hometown and loudly bawl,
As though we need a herald to announce
The coldness as it creeps into our bones
But this is where the murder wants to be,
I don’t know why these noisy birds would pounce
Upon this town where wind forlornly moans
Just never park your car beneath a tree.
