Boarders

by Edward Ahern

When was it
That we quit killing animals
And they opted to come back.
Neighborhoods teeming with humans
Are somehow settled by
Squirrels and possums and skunks
Song birds and crows and ducks
Raccoons and chipmunks and mice
Blue jays and woodpeckers and grackles
Deer and rats and feral cats
All visited by coyotes.
Surprising amount of room at the inn.
