The Pigeon Who Ate Manhattan

It was December the 21st
and people’s fears
were for the worst
as a giant pigeon
named Mountbatten
ate all of Manhattan.
Why weren’t we warned?
people cried
Before pigeon swallowed
and they died.
For you see my friend
at Manhattan’s end
it was the Mayan
who flunked math
having fallen asleep
in the bath
who designed that calendar
that once set the world aflur
but he missed the mark
by a hundred years
having drunk
a hundred beers
and December 21st 2112
came as a surprise
to New York’s jive and jell.
