the lesser-spotted poet


the lesser-spotted poet ( or poet minus-maculis )

the lesser-spotted poet

can be seen in dim-light

through squinty binoculars

around dawn or twilight

they're solitary creatures

who don't do packs or herds

they're lairs are all metaphored

they hunt for juicy words

they don't lek as those grouse do

or rut as those horned deer

they breed under those blue moons

but only on leap years

their numbers they are down now

their future's on the brink

so please help if you can as

too soon they'll be extinct
