Black-Browed Babbler

babbler

B
lack-browed babbler
appears
after being missing
170 years.
Where was it hiding
all this time,
this little remnant
of dinosaurs?
From Asian forests,
surely it soared
from hidden canopies
when it was bored
of this momentous
game of hide ’n seek,
seeking to be “it”
for a change.
One wishes that
the Tasmanian tiger
would return too,
like okapi did before.
Welcome back songbird:
babble evermore.
