Loose Screw

Loose Screw

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Two swallows came to visit

Up from down Peru

But I wonder how is it

This is something they can do


Awfully smallish wings

And a smallish bod

Pretty skimpy package

From the birdie god


How come eagles don’t make that trip

Ravens avoid it too

Are they smarter than the swallow

Who seems to lack a screw


Or could it be our winters

Are kina hard to suffer through

Guess I’ll ask that little wonder

If it’s me that lacks a screw

Author's Note

Dave Brown
each year we have two swallows that return to our place to nest in a birds nest I built years ago
We are likely close to the extent of their northern range and it is always a bit of a thrill to have them return (small minds etc.)
It always gets me a bit sentimental which brings forth my soft side and probably accounts for the birds, swallows, fairies, sasquatch and milk cows mushy, poemey type of thingy
