Pelicans flying in formation by ThisCantBeHappening
Here come the Pelicans,
Eight in a row
Following their leader,
Steering with their heads.
I stand at attention and salute.
Such primitive birds!
It feels right to honor
Their military instincts.
I'll miss them.
Within a few days
We will be back in Vermont
Where the birds are less organized.
They don't patrol the periphery
But it's each for him or herself.
