The Greedy King

The big cock pigeon
Has gobbled up the nuts
There he sits –
Cross-eyed on his throne
Drooling
In satiated ecstasy

Dominant, daring
His subjects to contest
He bats them back – boof!
With an easy wing
This ritual of pigeon humiliation
Seems familiar

The other pigeons
Weep in their frustration
Scrabble around for his scraps
Curse their luck
“If only I could be the cock pigeon
– I’d share a nut with you”

And above it all, sadly bemused
The friendly robin
On the fence post
“Why,” he wonders
“Does the Great Mystery
Not provide two bird tables?”
