Red October Berries

      some fine 
   afternoon
i may confess.

uneaten berries
      do not tempt.
until i see a little

   bird eat these
       and not die
   i won't touch.


   not far away
i saw a viper
   surrounded

by chattering
      people, all
the way around!

      it had no escape.
   i crouched nearby
and made a photo.

oh, see how smart
      i am, shooting
   from feet away!


      some fine
   afternoon
i may confess.

uneaten berries
      do not tempt.
until i see a little

   bird eat these
      and not die
   i won't touch.

  1. Acronyms are in order is my take: ROB.
    Red October Berries, the only reds I know are the Elderberries and the Gojiberries. Oh yes the other red berry that I loved as a child was the Tayberry which I haven’t tasted for a while.
    I hope a little bird comes along so you can trust yourself.
    I don’t think a viper can climb a tree unless it is a boomslang.
    Thank you for sharing mouth-watering funny and sharp tongued poetry this morning. Have a great monday Murray🍁
