Two tone thieves gather like senators
or tenors, slightly tipping as if heavy bellied.
Green and purple smudged feathers glint
as the sunlight catches them.
They chatter on the trapeze of a fairy thorn.
Ever vigilant, a salmons glance towards glinting
treasures, presumed below in suburbs.
They come, silent now, a pilots precision
gliding towards the gold milk tops
shining like fools gold on the door step,
cute enough, they scan the house for noise,
I stand; still as an Oak tree.
Carefully they pluck the lid
lap up the cream stash the lids in their beaks
and make off for the hill top again.
Still, I love these birds beautiful to look at and very noisey at times.
