SURVIVAL OF THE FATTEST
(12/21/17)

I watch
them

all sorts
of birds

squirrels

an occasional
mouse

sitting

feeding

on

under

around
the bird feeder
that I maintain
each winter

I have
upset
the natural
order

these
animals
should be foraging

scurrying
about
for food

digging
the soil

moving
dead vegetation

strengthening
their species

improving
the environment

I fear
that I may
be encouraging
the procreation
of a weaker
selection
of creatures

inferior
races

but I do
enjoy watching
them

as I sit
here

almost
guilt free

and eat
