Birds perch anywhere:
On a railing? They don’t care.
On a chimney, on a stone,
just so they can be alone.
At other times they want to chat –
be Jesus’ buddy, Neptune’s hat.
Cormorants and herons, on the whole
are happiest atop a pole.
The robin, sparrow and the thrush
are more at home on tree or bush.
And swallows, who don’t watch TV,
find aerials are first degree.
But strange to say, it’s just sometimes
that cormorants will sit in lines.
Most birds will always go and search
a mate, a nest, and perfect perch.
