26 April – Lonely on the loose

There’s a greylag goose,
lonely on the loose,
who’s clearly not an introvert.
He tried his luck
as a mallard duck
but was excluded from their floating herd.
Next time we pass
he’s moved to the grass,
hoping to join the sheep’s gang.
But the flock’s strict ewes
really don’t approve
and put an end to his little-lamb scam.
Poor greylag goose,
still lonely on the loose,
I hope you find your own kind.
It’s hard being alone
when other species disown
and always choose to leave you behind.
