Some In Every Crowd

Every day we filled her bowl,

confident she was well fed.

 Soon others came to share her bounty –

squirrels by day, a possum and raccoon

by night. All dined without fuss

or flutter until the arrival of the jays.

These airborne blue bloods

saw no value in turn-taking

and loudly proclaimed their right of first refusal,

utterly astonished  to be contested

by a mere cat and lowbred squirrels.
