Woodpigeons don't coo, they woohoo,

over and over and over until

you wonder if you really do like birds.

Woodpigeons try and try and try

to make their twiggy nests

in places you don't want them.

Woodpigeons don't use the bowl

you put out - they trample through

your brand new water-feature.


Woodpigeons hunch on the open fence

in the freezing wind and rain

despite you providing shelter.


Woodpigeons perch on the gutters

and shit on the windows,

then fly off applauding themselves.
