The Falcon's Trial - Poem by Leon Reynolds

The Falcon raved with savaged fury
As he was convicted by the jury
Of murdering an innocent mouse
And devouring it inside his house
The falcon began to shriek and squawk
Calling the judge a big fat dawk
As the judges hammer went bang
The falcon felt a little pang
As he was escorted by the police
The falcon turned to his beloved niece
Her eyes were filled with sorrow and fear
And from her eyes fell tear after tear
Uncle Falcon began to wail
As he was taken off to the jail.

With all his feathers falling out
The falcon began to pout
But with his ears heard
The calling of another bird
His beloved niece came to the door
Not caring if she defied the law.
She unlocked the door with a stolen key
And Uncle Falcon was as happy as could be.
They flew home quickly to their nest
And sat down for a well-deserved rest
And the story of the falcon says
Sometimes you have REALLY bad days.
