Easy Pickings


Birds bunched up

under the feeder


ruffled feathers

busy bills


pecking away

at seeds mingled in

the yellowed grass


late comers

getting the leftovers


the pecking order rules

as the mean one

chases off the small


but small birds persist

they circle back around

outsmarting the bully


sometimes smaller

is better

faster feet mean

easy pickings.
