Caution the unsuspecting
The fan tailed fly catcher pair was seen
Frequenting the area behind the house.
The bush of the trimmed bamboo trees
Swaying with delight to see the visitors a new.
The melody generator sweet little birds,
happy to find the place good enough
To make the nest guarded and secured
for laying and hatching the eggs
Easy accessed, hidden from evil eyes
Young ones would be sheltered and safe.
Hardly they could imagine the lurking,
wicked paws of the jumping cat
to trample the nest from the branch
which appeared protected and shielded
Few months ago, the cat attacked a nest,
pulled it down from the branch.
And oh dear! The young ones from inside,
were picked and gnawed
The uncontrollable distress of the parent birds
was beyond anybody’s capacity to bear
Somebody should caution
these unsuspecting parent birds.
Of the danger hidden in this
safe looking bush of bamboo
Someone should advise them to look for
unrestricted growing bamboo bushes
Where a nest on high branch there
would be out of reach of small four footed.
To go away, into deep forest.
Where the domestic cats
won’t be wandering,
with their evil eyes rolling.
