Feed The Birds
|painting by Rubens Peale|
We have taken their habitat
and replaced it with ours.
high rises and complexes
and yards to park our vehicles.
The trees that they built nest on,
are taken by electrical poles.
Meshed wires and billboards
sprawling all across the concrete roads
No, they do not need our golden cages
the birds like to fly and sing
just show them a little humanity
bring them water and feed
