Magpie

Fancy crow dressed in black and blue

Smart shrewd bird of colorful hue

Looking less priestly than his cousin

Recognizes himself in the big glass mirror

Brighter than others he’s not inferior

Know it’s him when he takes a peak

Loud and boisterous his piercing squawks

Strutting around with a swaggered walk

Bold and persistent to get with he wants

Edmonton’s squatter he lives out his days

Throughout frigid winters he does not go away

Scavenging the city mid traffic and steps
