Silly Geese

Across the country road
the geese stepped out
from one verge
to the other.

Not to scare them I
drove slowly, then stopped
as they stood before  me,
staring, their paddle feet
squarely on the road.

Their drover looked at me,
at them, then rolled hie=s
eyes to the sky. Looking
up the road then down,
he waved me on around
his feathered goosey charges.

As I continued down the
road my rear vision mirror
showed that flock of geese
waddling into their new field.

They showed me why
we call a foolish one
“A silly goose.
