The Birds

Anthony Ash Brennan

5 June 2020

This is not to make you jealous
But more a fantastic idea!
Sitting at my home on the Central Coast
Things with wings are bloody everywhere

The silence of Conjola is what saddens us most
When will the mammals and birds ever return?
If it wasn’t for the crash of bulldozers
It would be quiet, sad and alone

But up here we have a wonderful array of parrots, bush turkeys, kookas and hundreds more
And come 6am they give a one mighty roar.

Shane could collect them with his truck
And make Conjola alive again!
I beg you please take them
Please
So I can at least sleep past 7am.
