Australian Masked Lapwing (Plover)
quick steps, quick steps
masked lapwings two, in concert brisk
like law lords at court, in deep
conversation, natter, natter, natter
what’s the matter?
guilty I say
what say you?
natter, natter, natter,
doubly resplendent, in feathered robes,
the legal garb,
with hands clasped, in arrears
dress pinned, perhaps
busy day, busy day
must be on our quick step way
kak, kak, kak
For Selma in the City 😀 – we talked about the plover legal fraternity some years ago (finally I got around to writing the poem).
