Grackle The Poet

grackle-16005


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
