That bird has no dignity,
Cry like cholicked clearing of cracked throat
Voice straining against pitiful sound
Ducking dumbly at dirt
Sat stunned stupid on a stump.
Fumbling tufts of upturned feathers
No good fat for fine feasting
Paltry poultry purposeless pecking
Works weighted head with wonky wobbles,
Dumb bird cries like life depends on it.
Bumbled belting that brainless brackish bray
Like it has the only sound on earth
Daft dickering over dump
No more use than fertilizer
