Intrusive arrogant bird,

Strutting on my lawn!

Fat, sleek and fearless,

Begone beast! Begone!

You have no joy to offer,

No redeeming traits at all.

Fly back to where you came from.

You offend me with your gall!

You're a fright! You're a pest!

You're a demon on the wing!

You're an uninvited guest,

Without the wit to sing.

Jaunty robins, friendly sparrows,

Welcome! You bring cheer.

But I'll let the cat out

When magpies venture near!
