Don't feed bread to the birds, especially the swans
Give them proper bird food, it's better for them
So off we go to the Scotstoun Emporium
Two bags of food, the good stuff please
Stuff that's good for the swans to eat.
I see carrots on the grass, and the swans are eating it.
Next day as I peel the carrots for soup, I save them a bit.
Bird food and carrots I took to the park
pigeons, seagulls, ducks, grebes, and the coots
scoffed the bird food, ignored the carrot.
And the swans scoffed the bread from another person
who didn't seem to know not to do this.
Well, it can't be that bad for them can it?
if they prefer white bread to eating carrot.
The herons and parakeets are not around
Maybe they've found a better ground
for winter, with less competition
for food, where they get recognition.
This lockdown has been great for community living
Remember the birds and squirrels, and the food keep on giving
