Flutter flutter! I hover around
Happy and full of zest
Clutter! Clutter! I make a mess
As I gather twigs for my nest
Gooter goo! Gooter goo!
I keep your bad luck at bay
I am a pigeon-spirited parent like you
When my babies coo all day
I was your earliest and first friend
Helping you send letters and messages
But you forgot me soon
With growing technology and ages
You find me merry go round
‘Make no sound’ you tell me
But I don’t complain about the city’s concrete.
I am peace loving. Don’t judge me
