Now For A Nice Pigeon Poem

After that rather fucking disturbing bit of pigeon news, I thought I’d do some poetry. Here’s one I found the other day:

If Pigeons Had Teeth

If pigeons had teeth

Children in the park

Would be less likely to aggravate them

by Dicky Cantrell

Er, hello? Is that It? State the obvious in quite a crap way, make it rhyme a bit, and call it a poem? This got me thinking. If he can do it, so can I.

White Pigeon Love
Pigeons, oh so wonderous in flight.

Pigeons are great,

Especially in white.

by Brian Pigeon

This is a ref back to the classy Chiswick pigeon called Mary I quite fancied a couple of weeks back. The shy one.

As you know, I dig a bit of poetry, just never thought of giving it a go till I found Dicky C.

What do you reckon? A Pigeon laureate in the making?

    Try throwing that poem there at Mary, Brian–who knows, maybe it will soften her up a little!

    Becci: Nice thought. I might just try that.

    Do you find it racist that only white pigeons are called doves?

    • Dominic Fuller replied:

      doves and pigeons are actually slightly different ,,, rock doves are where they all come from ,, mans hand made pigeons , doves are generally smaller and lighter ,,, like with horses man has bred what we call race pigeons to what they are now

    Julia: Yeah – although, tbh, Doves tend to be a bit up their own arse. Probably coz of all the Bible shit. Shame really – lady doves are hot!

    There is one really wonderful pigeon poem. It is “Pigeons,” by Lisel Mueller. You can find it in ALIVE TODAY: NEW AND SELECTED POEMS, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1997.

    I also like Steven Schroeder’s poem, “Revolutionary Patience,” in his book by the same name.

    Both are “pigeon poems” but they are about more than just pigeons.
