Title: Land-gulls - a feathered invasion

Strutting down the street
they gain no friends.
This is surely no place
for lordly feathers -
yet their flat webbed feet
slap the tarmac
with proprietary intent,
choosing morsels
with shambolic unconcern
from the discarded rubbish
fast-flushed from flimsy plastic -
to splatter on the pavement.
Showing no remorse
those guilty claim the street.
Curved beaks cry out in noisy annoyance
at our approach.
They dive-bomb with precision.
Birds are beautiful
but I do not like
this present-day invader.
