213 • Jackdaw Farewell

Farewell to my jackdaw, Jean-Claude,
Who liked to lie flat in the road.
The neighbours all laughed
But I thought he was daft.
He doesn’t deserve a long ode.

Many will feel it unlikely that the corvid in question ‘liked to lie flat in the road’, and judge it more probable that he was mown down there by a careering juggernaut … which is what the neighbours found amusing.
