The Swallow

Little bony scrotum
perched in a muddy seat
patiently awaiting
another visit from the feathery food machine

a squirt of half chewed worm
or bug or slater
wrapped in a pretty wrapper
heíll save it up for later

oi! mum I want another!
ya canít ya bath is ready
anyway I gave it to yer brother
now turn off the bloody telly
