Pigeons, Pigeons, Sandhill Cranes

From the plentiful pigeons of New York City to the backyard ubiquity of Sandhill Cranes in Wisconsin, it’s easy to take for granted those things that surround us.

Pigeons, pigeons everywhere,
We walk by without a care,

image

Here’s one sitting looking pretty,

image

There’s one next to some graffiti,

image

This one’s shadow might be spying,

image

Here’s a flock of pigeons flying.

image

Sandhills, Sandhills, all around,
For miles we hear their rattling sound,

image

Here are some who stopped to prattle,

image

Zoom out and you’ll see some cattle,

image

Here’s one, like a pole he’s standing,

image

Here are two in mid-air, landing.

image

Do they look at us and think...

People, people, everywhere,
On the ground and in the air,

On the farm and on the street,
On their phones they text and tweet,

In their cars and trucks they speed,
barely ever taking heed,

It’s hard to care about their feelings,
They’re just silly human beings.
