birds



the royal
regal
blue-jay

prince of
thieves
eats eggs


the bird of
peace...
also a
thief

a pest and
a glutton
the dove
plagues farm fields
incessantly



vultures:
misunderstood
bald janitors of
the sky

eat the dead and
the soon-to-die
clean and keep
the world
disease-free


Noble eagles
cunning hawks
murder
anything
that moves


angels
spread wings and
gracefully
glide

plumage
bright
white

while


demons
spread wings and
gracefully
glide

plumage
bright
white
