Hubrist by Stella M. Turk MBE

To human pride there is no end:
We think we are the Robin’s best friend
As it waits for the spade of earth to reveal
Some juicy fat grub for its next tasty meal
But long beefier the first human stirred
The Robin was here as an early bird
And what could dig more
Than a busy Wild Boar?

Stella M Turk MBE

29th November 1998

Stellas notes:

After hearing David Attenborough declare (in his TV series on birds) that the Robin probably formerly followed in the footsteps of the rooting Wild Boar.
