Falcon Rights

A peregrine falcon
Flew over my head and
Landed in a leafless tree.

Only the second peregrine falcon
I have ever seen.

A crow joined him
In the tree
In a distant branch.

I approached the
For a better look.

The bird gave me a look,
Preened lazily and
Took off
With the crow behind.

I lost sight of them
But soon got to see the
Falcon chasing the crow.

Falcons do not take any shit.
