King of the Woodpile

Tans and browns and green grey camo
the grouse knows how to blend
with wood and bark and aspen bough
feathered illusionist. Then,
with cocky self importance
he proceeds to sabotage
his monochrome advantage
of feathered camouflage
by drumming on the woodpile,
and he makes it very plain,
that all who hear had best steer clear
for he has staked his claim.


Self Preservation in the Office Environment

Birds fly away
bears defend
‘possoms play dead
and chameleons blend.

I have no wings,
I am not strong,
I fidget too much
to play dead long.

So I guess I’ll blend
but please don’t blab it,
I’m over here disguised
as a filing cabinet.
