It Rained Today

It rained today, when
a robin landed on the fence and
looked around.
Then, a bluejay landed
on the fence and it
looked around.

They looked at each other
for some time, when
the bluejay pecked the robin
in the breast.
The robin flew away, then
the bluejay did the same.

It rained today when
two birds landed on the fence,
they stared at one another,
then one pecked the other, and
then they went their separate ways.
