The Bird With The Missing Foot
We spotted him on the wall
posing too perfectly
Even for one used to the crowds
who flocked around the sea-front Wimpy
idling away their time
Even he who desired such treats
would surely have backed away
from the snap, flash, snap
of an otherwise empty handed spectator
An observer? A fan?
Or just someone after an angle,
which captured so much
but failed to reveal the truth
of what he lacked.
