    I bought a bird feeder and hung
    It on my back porch. It's a beauty of
    A bird feeder and I filled it lovingly with seed.
    Within a week we had hundreds of birds
    Taking advantage of the
    Continuous flow of free and
    Easily accessible food.

    But then the birds started
    Building nests in the boards
    Of the patio, above the table,
    And next to the barbecue.

    Then came the poop. It was
    Everywhere: on the patio tile,
    The chairs, the table ....

    Then some of the birds
    Turned mean. They would
    Dive bomb me and try to
    Peck me even though I had
    Fed them out of my own

    And other birds were
    Boisterous and loud. They
    Sat on the feeder and
    Squawked and screamed at
    All hours of the day and night
    And demanded that I fill it
    When it got low on food.

    After a while, I couldn't even
    Sit on my own back porch
    Anymore. So I took down the
    Bird feeder and in three days
    The birds were gone. I cleaned
    Up their mess and took down
    The many nests they had built
    All over the patio.

    Soon, the back yard was like
    It used to be.... Quiet, serene
    And no one demanding their
    Rights to a free meal.

    Now let's see...
    Our government gives out
    Free food, subsidized housing,
    Free medical care, and free
    Education and allows anyone
    Born here to be an automatic

    Then the illegals came by the
    Tens of thousands. Suddenly
    Our taxes went up to pay for
    Free services; small apartments
    Are housing 5 families; you
    Have to wait 6 hours to be seen
    By an emergency room doctor;
    Your child's 2nd grade class is
    Behind other schools because
    Half the class doesn't speak

    Corn Flakes now come in a
    Bilingual box; I have to
    "press one" to hear my bank
    Talk to me in English, and
    People waving flags other
    Than "Old Glory" are
    Squawking and screaming
    In the streets, demanding
    More rights and free liberties.

    Just my opinion, but maybe
    it's time for the government
    To take down the bird feed er.
    If you agree, pass it on; if not,
    Continue cleaning up the poop!
