A Rubber Room Or Magic Mushroom?

The cat was relaxing, hey, eating and meowing can be taxing, and there was a noise from above. Maybe some being was trying to send us love? It came and it went, not stopping and pitching a tent.

There came a clatter,
That didn't seem to matter.
A faint little sound,
Nothing too profound.

It came and went,
Trailing down the vent.
Not giving a peep,
Then what the bleep?

The noise was loud,
And rather proud.
Going across the ceiling,
It was an eerie feeling.

Then down it came,
Sounding the same,
Stuck in the microwave vent.
It must have got bent.

It climbed out,
Without a shout.
Trotting along,
Like nothing was wrong.

What could it be?
Are we just crazy?
Give the super a call.
Could be rats in the wall.

Comes for a look,
As I write a book.
Thinks I am rather mad,
Hearing things in my pad.

Then trot trot trot,
Becomes part of the plot.
Both could not be as mad as a hatter,
So out comes the ladder.

Nothing of note,
Aboard this boat.
Yet still a trot,
Annoys a lot.

Pull off a grate,
Hoping to avoid a Gremlin fate.
Then what should appear?
A pigeon giving a "Freedom" cheer.

All through the day we were privileged to be  host to that dumb noisy bird. People thought we were absurd. They were ready to ship us off to a rubber room or throw us in jail for taking a magic mushroom. Turns out it was a trespass. Never doubt my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  2. Playing host 'to that dumb noisy bird'
    Happenings sometimes can be absurd
    Let it be
    It'll be free
    Not necessary to hound it off nor to blurt

    A pigeon in your wall!
    Must be a funny feeling
    To hear it walk in your ceiling.
    Good thing you gave a shout
    So he could get it out!

    2. Had a rat in the ceiling freshman year,
      college dorm, what a fear.
      And I had the top bunk
      what a funk.
      Inches from my head
      oh the dread
      just thin ceiling tiles in between
      was almost enough to make me scream!

  5. The pigeon only lost the door
    And had to enter through the floor
    He had a message that was brilliant
    His way of entry not resilient
    Some one is always watchng, hearing
    Carrier pigeon's day again is nearing

  14. Reminds me of the time a bird came down our chimney and got trapped in the fireplace, which we cover with a piece of made-to-fit paneling when it isn't in use. After my hubby rescued the ash-covered critter and set it free, I asked him what kind it was. He looked at me with a deadpan expression, and said... "Gray."

    with them.

  26. When I first moved here, I'd hear the strangest sounds. I was sure there were birds on the roof. I finally stopped hearing it. When we had our front door replaced recently, my husband had the guy look at the post out front. When he started looking at it, he took part of it off that needed to be replaced and found a bunch of dead birds inside. They'd been trying to build nests at the top and falling down and dying. So...ewwww.
