Politics 'n Pigeons 'n things

I am one of the pigeons that live on wilberforce's head
which in pigeon meritocracy puts me near the top
between those on the city and guildhalls
and those on the better type of shop.

I got this position by birthright
we've been here since 19 and 10
in spite of attempts to remove us
every now and then

when somebody in power
seemed to get an urge
and bang before we knew it
its on with another purge.

so mr city councillor if in passing
I leave a message on your hat
just regard it as a greeting
from an avian aristocrat
