An Avian Wall Street | A Social Justice Poem by Donal Mahoney

Two doves on a telephone wire
wait for the blue jays to finish eating
bread put out for the birds.

When the jays arrived,
sparrows fled into the trees
because jays dine alone.

When the jays have had enough
the doves and sparrows will share
whatever the jays leave behind.
