dive for fish - a Decuain
More birds are extinct than we ever named,
How did you, kingfisher, come to survive?
Deserving, you dive for fish unashamed.
Grateful evolution let you skydive,
Graceful, playful, to catch fish you contrive.
Daily your beauty graces our canals.
Although we pressure Earth, I hope you thrive.
Animals can't understand our morals.
Tell me, would you live well if you were tamed?
Oh! For such a thought, I should be ashamed.
