Robins May Have Red Breasts - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I know why I am not included,
In your conversations.

Most of the time I am ignored.
And that is done,
Without hesitation.

Allow me to just say this.
And it will be done swiftly and quick.

Is not WINTER.

Neither is WINTER,
A time for SPRING.

Robins may have red breasts.
But it is their chirping,
The attention to them brings!

Thank you!
I will now exit...
To disappear from you to leave.
