time to chill out...with a little jazz

    maggies charlie miles and dave
    and woody came to play
    and danced to sounds of warbled rounds
    baptising each new day
    a feeling of contentment reigned
    that the sun was welcomed in this way

    then crows appeared! a standoff!
    the kookas didn’t sway
    unimpeachable in their genre
    yet haughtiness came into play

    not quite so with maggie
    her cousin crow in discord may
    have forced her from her broadway show
    and now on tour she spends her day

    kookas sensed where worms or mouse
    or reptile slunk or lay
    a guest but came by regularly
    precisely when one could not say
    jealousy got the maggies who
    scooped up their score and flew away

    sometimes I catch an early gig
    from out of town before the crow
    has rigged a loudmouth boorish act
    no charlie bird would want to know

    kooka king and consort
    still laugh at wriggle prey
    inscrutable till screech and throng
    tried dominating play

    a tricky composition
    the rampant crow had wreaked duress
    who to get top billing
    maggie bowed to crow success

    jazz warbling this morning
    long before the ugly duck
    and sang distinctive melodies
    till miles and we were out of luck

    there still remains a middle c
    despite a crow cacophony
    since charlie left the chorus
    unknowns create in minor key

    tweet ensemble orchestrated
    the dawning music show
    maggie roused but then frustrated
    bested by the crow

    heckle now took for granted
    and relished in his very sound
    he expected dave and kooka
    would never come around

    beauty lives! in royal touch
    methinks protesteth far too much
    that stark ungrateful raucous crow
    I kooka king have axed his show

    maggie charlie miles and dave
    and woody came back to play
    and danced to sounds of warbled rounds
    confirming each new day
    a feeling of contentment reigns
    the sun beseeched by maggie may
