Bird Land

They sit on telephone wires

What do they talk about?

Did you hear about Chester he got ate by a coyote

Old crazy Maxie tried to chase a hawk

Didn’t end well

See that bald head under us?

I pooped on it a week ago

Bonnies got the hots for Clyde but he only has eyes for Marilyn

My beak hurts

Can’t catch them wriggle worms like I used too

What about this weather huh?

Speculation on conversation confab on telephone line

In Bird Land.
