Tried a new bird seed.
Even the squirrels made it clear
it was not to their liking.
One small bird stood and stared
as if to say, “What were you thinking?”
I drove my granddaughter
to three different stores in search of seed
and this is the thanks I get? Puhlease!
Two mourning doves did stop by
and dined undisturbed
by squirrels or other birds.
I knew there was a reason why
I have a fondness for these guys.
