An Ominious Thing It is
To Have Vultures Visit Your Neighborhood
Majestic and Magnificient
Beautiful and Regal
YET . . .
Disconcerting To The Senses
Aren't They The Grim Reaper of Birds
Traveling in Huge Flocks
Filling All of The Treetops
AND . . .
They Just Sit There
Occasionally Moving From Tree to Tree
Posing For Pictures If You Have Telephoto
Squawking Making Their Presence Known
THEN . . .
Quick As They Came
Flying Off In A Veritable Wave of Blackness
The Loud Flapping of Power Wings
Taking This Scavengers On Their Way
To Where ~ No One Knows!
