Magpies

Magpies magpies

In the nest

Crows with white waistcoats

On their breasts

 

Magpies chirping

Magpies squawk

Magpies bickering

Absent thought

 

Silly magpies

Building nests

From gold and silver

For their Eggs

 

Magpies swooping

Magpies dive

They take your rings

and trinkets high

 

Tinfoil, brochures,

magz and gloves

Magpies hate

the tasteless Doves

 

Magpies seeing

Things that shine

Overwrites their

Magpie minds

 

Glitter, flitter,

Snatch and coo

The reason for this

Not one knew

 

“Magpies?

‘Just the way we are”

The magpies love

With frantic hearts

 

Jet and pearl

And filled with hunger

Magpies sweating

For their youngers
