The Allies - Poem by Jonathan Simard

The hummingbird flew over the wrong side of the tracks
Pigeons didn’t like the look of him, they pecked at him
One urinated on him
Hummingbird was confused
About the same time owl appeared
And looked at what was going on
Hummingbird sat frightened on a branch
Owl flew over and perched nearby
The pigeons began to murmur amongst themselves

After that owl was still owl
Hummingbird was still hummingbird
And pigeons were still pigeons

But something had changed
Because pigeons know that when someone is friends with owl
You don’t piss on them
