PUT THE POLITICIANS ON THE MINIMUM WAGE AND WATCH HOW FAST THINGS CHANGE
Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

WHO KILLED COCK ROBIN ?

 

Robin

WELL – I DID, BUT I DID NOT MEAN TO…..

 

The Radical
30th Oct 2018

 

This morning I found a Robin caught in a mouse trap.

 

How it got in to the Covered Courtyard full of fragile winter plants I shall never know.

 

But as the cold snap came it was time to cull the mice that come

 

in from the fields to eat the lush greenery in the “green house”

 

So there was this Robin with a fairly stale piece of cheese in its beak

 

and its head trapped in a mouse trap.

 

That I have never seen before.

 

I have caught mice but never birds in a mouse trap 

 

I have also only caught moles in mole traps 

 

Vermin Yes but “Wildlife” NO.

 

We have a new bird feeding station too which attracts the Tit family, a Jenny Wren

 

and numerous Blackbird boys, the females of which, are brown.

 

We have two love Doves visiting and Finches too 

It is a wonderful sight as I sit at my window working on the website.

 

Instead of Fatballs for our Feathered Friends, I put in toast and it is so funny to see the Tits

 

pecking at it in the cage and dropping the toast

 

on the floor for birds who don’t come to the feeding station.

 

So think of the wildlife this winter. 

 

And it reminds me of the poem..

 

I must not through away the crust I cannot eat

 

For there are little boys and girls going hungry in the street

 

For wilful waste makes woeful want

 

And I may live to say 

 

Oh how I wish I had saved that crust which once I threw away
