Arrogant Pigeon

Arrogant pigeon
Bobbing by like he owns the place
The toughest birds hang out in the city

Before I have time to mull over this thought and its possible metaphorical elegance, my attention is stolen away

A murder of crows
Ripping apart a dead mouse
A young guy walks by
Without noticing
Then a kid on a pink scooter and her parents
Each, in turn, missing the gory scene
All the passers by pass by
The crows continue to tear at the creature
And I watch
