Grackle The Poet


The grackle’s voice is less than mellow, his heart is black, his eye is yellow.

He bullies more attractive birds with hoodlum deeds and vulgar words,

And should a human interfere, attacks that human

in the rear. I cannot help but deem the grackle

An ornithological debacle.

– Ogden Nash

Well said! No comments necessary!
