Wild Beasts In Manhattan
“New York City really has it all.” — The Ramones
While pigeons wobble and fly
and squirrels and rats do scurry —
these motionless creatures delight;
rare among New Yorkers —
they’re not in a hurry!
Ostriches. (So many we sell their meat.)
Other exotic birds . . .
The occasional feral cat.
Roaches are big in this city.
