  5. Sir Corvus Splendens Zugmayeri*** ,
    earlier
    of Anjarle,
    on the lush
    Kokan coast,
    now settled
    in Bandra, Mumbai
    since the last generation......

    Reflecting
    on the scarcity of trees
    he can alight on,
    in this metropolis,
    and
    worried about
    the competition
    that exists
    to scavenge
    something he wishes to....

    Its a difficult life,
    what with
    so many wires crisscrossing
    the sky,
    all those towers on buildings,
    such terrible deisel-ised air,
    and having
    to fight
    with eagles and gulls
    frequently....

    The hair is getting whiter,
    the eyebrows sparser;
    and although
    He can see better than most,
    He stares in anger,
    speechless,
    but asks,
    why this Zugmayeri Zugmayeri Zugmayeri Di ?


    ***Indian House Crow sc. name

  6. Wonderful portrait, Deepak! He does, indeed, look to be posing. Or crowing about something! Our crows have no white...they're all black and very big. And very pesky!
