Apro pros pigeons

Spotting rush hour pigeons

in dark Hyde Park

apropros nothing much

I observe their infamous bird droppings

City types passers-by do not swerve,

don't even try,

Just desserts, no less than they deserve

those damn birds squirts

due to phone prepossession

obsession wrought by manifold

possession of the wrong kind of apples.


I process my fine, goodly one

chuckling, sucking my juicy citrus wine till I stop

finally chucking my repast, consumed to the divinest drop

Go home clean-heeled

for some all is at last revealed.

"Darling you've fouled the carpet and your best shoes."


Emailed texted up with inanities, mouthing profanities

such are the consequences of venal vanity.

Ah, pigeons! But they have such beauiful colors, grays with greens and each has his own personality ... :smile:


I'm excited that you've posted this latest composition and that you're feeling better.

Verbal vaities , oops, vanities, ...good on yer!


Pity we can't unbuckle and return fire ... a bit much for Hyde Park I suspect.


Got your PPM but attempts at a reply failed ... after being written of course!

I picked up on the reference immediately having spent the first part of the year in hospital myself.

And God how I disliked it!!!


Hope you are feeling stronger ... strong enough to stay out of the place.



Drown your sorrows in drink, by all means, but the real sorrows can swim

Welcome back to the Quill Games, Frank. Nice to see you dodging and sipping through Hyde and logging it in your own unique style here at the Opus.
