Flush not!

I, like the Marbled Godwit, am not easily flushed as in knocked off my nest,

either from my brood or the now emptier but still sweet home

& the man I live with.

Incubating MGs sit motionless even when approached by predators

and can actually be lifted from their nests, they’re that tenacious.

I see Hillary like this and will wish her well on Monday night.

A Trump win will be disaster for US(A).

Flush not!!

  1. Love your poem and video of the marble or marvellous godwit. Let’s hope Hillary has some of the wit and God on her side! I fear for all the world if Trump wins but some folk even in the UK see him as needed change! Politics seems to be about vacuous sound bites at present. Still no plan for Brexit yet in the UK !


  2. Thanks, Patty. You nailed it in one of my favorite poems so far. Godwit’s; let’s hear it! I will be watching Monday night to see if Trump’s advisers have managed to clean up his sputters. Though I agree that our country needs some change, he isn’t the way to go.
