Jackdaw

Jackdaw

Jackdaw

Voluble
voice of
the jackdaw
as it feeds
as it begs
as it calls
for contact :
and the night
chatter of the
roosting flock

Part of the
crow family
with it black
plumage
and grey eyes
the jackdaw
can imitate
the human voice

Though it
will never run
for elected office
its first words
are cheep cheep
cheep cheep
cheep cheep
