The He Said, She Said, of the Local News
So many twisted views
across every cell,
scorned the editor.
Swore seeing white clouds hovering
low over flooded greens of Highgate Golf Club
Whitehall Park under siege by gulls and
heavy rains left mass flooding.
Predicting, Hitchcock's birds all over again.
Noisy Oystercatchers says one
GULLS attacking! Swore ten reports.
pecking at pedestrians
in mobbing fashion.
Large white-headed gulls
these heart-less predators
baiting humans below
with their devilish feeding.
Skilled by opening mussels
and preying on one another
stealing and pecking
told in ranges from crows to magpies!
How do we report?
139 calls still holding.
So post to wit
our dear editor prays
