#Poetry #Birds #Magpie

Salford, 10th October 2020

Maybe you could call it

a most intelligent bird

gracefully flying through the air with ease

positioned on the birdbath admiring himself

in the waters reflection below

every other other bird watching as he looks at himself.

          Under a curious government lockdown up here in the north, Peter. Still allowed to do my volunteering, but with distancing imposed.

            Nottingham is about to be locked down again we believe. As a young man I read a book called “The Path to Leadership”. I don’t think that anyone in government has ever heard of it, never mind read it!
