Robin on spade

 

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?

 

 

Authors 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.
