People as pigeons? The whole idea seems bird-brained!
Well, in lots of ways humans are.
If we become stuck or in conditioned routines, are we not bird-brained?
If we regarded people as pigeons
our vision would achieve new heights.
Pigeons are eminent pragmatists
who bicker if the stakes are low
but when there's genuine danger
These birds have a clear pecking order
and skillfully gauge strength and size.
So next time you ruffle your feathers
or feel stuck in a cage
remember our feathered kin
Adapting to fate's whims
surviving when pickings are slim
