Backyard diva, La Rubia,
survives raccoon claw and dog chase
falls to free range mystery–
some other backyard beasty.


She survived raccoon feast and dog jaw–
one wing shoved in her sisters’ backs.
Some mother backyard beasty–
La Rubia, blonde diva no more.


One wing thrust in sister chicks’ backs,
she ducked but couldn’t fly.
La Rubia, old hen out the coop door–
never to return for pecks and shoves.


Chick ducked but couldn’t fly,
fell prey to free range mystery
never to return for pecks–no love
for backyard bully, La Rubia.
