barking mad up the wrong tree

there was a loony bird in the park today
sitting perched halfway up a tree
it took three policemen in flack jackets
to talk her back down to Earth even
though at no point was she in any real
danger of falling from her roost
she went quietly enough in the end
but then they mostly always do
without warning as if following much
the same whim that saw her shin
her way up the makeshift bean stalk
to begin with the woman folded away
her wings, stowing them somewhere
about her otherwise nondescript person
before with a somewhat crestfallen air
she was next led to a waiting police van
her flight for freedom permanently
grounded.
