Jumbo jets vs jackdaws or jays


If only we could fly like

those that tweet or hoot

without aid of jet or

parachute



For I sure don't like

wings that roar

just so they can take off

and soar



Ah, to fly without petrol, diesel

or fuel

Oh, to halt that taloned midair

duel



Birds they don't pollute

the air

nor need they any airline

fare



So if only I too could rise

and glide

and let the wind be my

sole guide



I'd be happy to fly all the

way to 'em' faraway stars

if I was assured I'd risk

no charring scars.



Flying without aviation

formalities

I could be sightseeing

many more cities



Ah I so wish to fly just

like a jay or jackdaw

Then I'd fly across all and

every border

For I'd know nor follow

no man-made law!



(" *Nb. by midair duel i meant what i watched on TV, of eagles fighting in midair talons locked and all. )



(My profile pic illustrates this my latest poem.)
