Four Very Short Nature Poems....[pigeons; Bats; Mosquitoes; Slugs; Some Humor] - Poem by Bri Edwards
Some call it pigeon, some say rock dove.
Some, for it, feel hate; some more like love.
Once found nesting on high rock face.........,
now they are the city's "disgrace".

Beware what falls on you, Reader, from above!
Amazing Bat Features
A bat is a wonderful creature.
Clawed wings area a distinctive feature.
Its bite is worse that its "bark".
It can fly in the dark;
‘bout radar it might make a good teacher.
As I Squish You, Mosquito
What are you thinking, as I squish you?
Did you suck some blood from my tissue?
You HARDLY had a drink;
Your belly was not pink.
Have you a family that will miss you? ?
Out my kitchen window live some slugs
with an affinity for my rugs.
From back door they do crawl,
leaving trails in the hall.
They move in slow motion, unlike bugs.
