I write what I feel…


Jake the Peg


A picture of despondency

Such resignation

Poor Jake the Peg

Sits apart, his back hunched

In abject dejection

While the other birds

Scramble and squawk

Over the scattered crumbs

His humble mien

Servile and meek

He waits his turn

When the rest have gone

Note: I have nicknamed the one-footed Hadeda that visits morning and evening ‘Jake the Peg’.
