Red-wing blackbird parks above my head…That watchful eye focused on me while repeating mild warning calls. check, check, check
His shoulder badge bears witness to his duty as forerunner, he’s obligated I suppose.
But to the dragonflies, they pay no mind…darting, chasing, they zip within inches of me.
And to the fish, they pay no mind…springing out and doing belly flops right next to me.
So too those mosquitoes outright laugh as they happily munch on me.
Therefore red-wing, step down. There is no danger here. Step down.
