Two plump gulls

by Jem Croucher


Two gulls flew into Manchester
on a rainy winter’s day
Forty miles from coastal waters
for what reason? Who can say?
Perhaps the Irish Sea was too
cold and rough out there
So they fancied flying inland
to a calmer place somewhere

I suspect though that their tummies
made them fly so very far
For though the sea has much to offer
City food’s spectacular
I must admit they looked quite plump
on the railings in the rain
So maybe they’ll be staying here
as they have to much to gain
