Can you see where this one is going to? If not, read on.

Seagulls

Walking on the strand
Sky an azure blue
Waves gently roll
No one else in view

Gulls careen and call
Soaring on wingtips
I toss up to them
Crumbled cracker bits

Floating on the wind
I gaze into the sky
One repays gratitude
Crapping in my eye

Alicat

Although that story is quite sad,
How that bird fixed your wagon,
Think how bad it might have been
If it had been a dragon!


That ain't enough to ease your mind?
Perhaps this little fact will
Make you feel lucky that
It weren't no teradactyl!

You get just what you deserve.. hehehe.. Now if it were a dragon would you have crap on your whole body? I don't think that I want to think about that anymore.. Thatnks for this interesting piece.. Now I'll have to keep looking skyward, but not for too long..

Love,
Lady

Seagull doody, Dragon doody.
Being mad is quite insane.
Now wouldn't you be sad,
If what hit you was a plane?

I thought this poem was very funny. I enjoy the lighter side of poetry very much, especially irony. You have made my day very bright, though still darque. Thank you, Alicat!

Next time - don't shortchange the gulls with crummy bits of crackers - give them something they really use in their craw - like a firecracker or cherry bomb. lol

I liked your twist at the end
