freak of nature

The freak of nature


There is a tiny islet in the foggy Saragossa Sea

it has no name since no self-respecting explores

would put his name on it.

However, it had a Vulcan that erupted and when

the lava stream cooled seagulls found it a good

a place to nest.

Something strange happened some of the eggs

grew huge and when hatched had a wingspan

of 3metres and they were not of a friendly


Glutinous they attacked goats and bigger prey   

And lone fishermen in their rowing boats it was

So you could not go to sea getting supper with

Carrying a shotgun.

It so happened the birds were infertile a freak

Of nature, like birds, but they are long-lived if you

see them on a clear day you better keep your eyes

to the sky.
