Choice Blend at the BirdFeeder

For some reason watching these birds reminded me of how woefully ineffectual the democrats in Washington have become.
disappointing dems
need lessons from little birds
how to claim their space

such fearless defense
of the precious platform, on
which their ideals lie
standing firm on hope
shouting down on principle
compelled by hunger

utterly engaged
extend pointed arguments
toward soft bellies

We watch these little birds have more fight, drive, passion, and courage than our senators or representatives. We watch them as they evade the nearly ever-present Sharp-shinned and Cooper's hawks, knowingly intepreting the shadows as they spread across the yard.
