crossbills 2

 

Move on

is what the Red Crossbills do if the seed cone crop fails:

Range far and wide searching for abundance & security.

We birders waxed ecstatic when they landed on the Spruces at Benedict Pond

to pry tiny pine nuts from between the scales of the cones,

gnashing those cross-tipped, orthodonture’s dream mandibles.

Might that be what I’ll have to do if abundance and security wan

with a Donald win?

Gnash? Move on?

One thought on “The Crossbills aren’t, er, cross as in angry and fussy, that is. Definitely in need of orthodonture of a sort. (a 420 character 9-liner that only mentions Trump)
