Mockingbird has a Death Wish

A mockingbird perches
on the highest limb of a young redwood.
Mimicking the other birds,
as well as the cats, cars, and tractors.
Fiercely defending its nest.
This tiny bigmouth has become a pest.
Tempting me to take the bells
off the necks of my friendly feline pets.
Let all hell break loose
and put this annoying avian to rest.
Yet, that might upset
the delicate balance of my entire back yard.
A mockingbird perches
on the highest limb of a young redwood.
Screeching out insults.
Respect for others is not easily understood.
