Up on the tree,
up way high,
sits a little sparrow.

With talons curled
around the branch,
secured to the tree.

A shot is heard,
a loud cry rings,
and now all is silent.

Little sparrow is no more,
its brains splattered on the branch.

Up on the tree,
up way high,
lies a dead little sparrow.

Its talons curled
around the branch,
forever clinging as rigor mortis sets in.

Ruby red,
slick and shiny,
slides down the tree.

Little sparrow is no more,
a victim of the hunt.

A victim?
Not so,
for the hunter has a good reason.
Little sparrow really should’ve watched where it did its business.
