Birds in the Courtyard

call every bird to the courtyard
even the ones with the saddest stories
let them all sit at peace for once and open out
to life problems like we sage humans do
we could teach them all how to communicate well
give each of them a pair of earphones and maybe a touchscreen something
expecting them to grasp faster the essence of their growing songs
trafficking the village air with debates

every bird must come to the courtyard, especially the old ones
they’ll be dropped back if it gets too late or gets cold
refreshments and toxic soda will be kept free for all
politics, religion and sex must be avoided – for that matter,
everything that humans refrain from solving
must be left untouched
stick to bird problems such as migration and meat-eating
or maybe race and colour separation
or better still melting ice and falling trees

Oh wait
