The Cardiff Scavengers - Poem by Vikram G. Aarella

They are everywhere, on hospital, on temple, on castle
They spend their time terrorising innocent people.

They fly around and harass you for no reason,
You cannot avoid them no matter what season.

They should be out in the sea fishing
Try to build a nest, and make a living.

Instead, they have become bold and gritty
And adopted themselves, to a life in the city.

They scavenge for food like vultures,
And behave like fearless alien creatures.

The largest colony of seagulls in the country,
Has chosen Cardiff as home, reason? remains a mystery.
