A New Nest

Animals, Nature

A poem by me, published in the Allpoetry publication – “Reflected Memories”, about a nearby redevelopment and the birds who lived on the roof

a new nest

As the humans left
The old Victorian building
Squatters moved in
To take their place

The new owners
Took a shine at first
To their feathered friends
But not for long

High pitched noises
Made it clear
To the winged residents
“Not wanted here!”

And so, buildings been done
Without a need
To give the winged locals
A regular feed

But on nearby rooftops
The winged ones are back
And heavy set builders
Fear feathery flack
