Bird Killer


Recent reports by so-called experts have theorised about the diminishing numbers of birds in our gardens.
Some have blamed birds of prey and some have suggested farmers are at fault.
One culprit seems to have escaped criticism.
Having watched our cat, Snuggles (no, I didn’t choose the name), from my office window, I felt I ought to add my name to the list of experts…

A sparrow trilled a trilly-tweet,
perched upon our garden seat.
Struggling to reach top ‘C’ (flat),
failed to spot the neighbours cat,
and that…
was that!
