The Palmerston Pigeon

A short Southsea themed poem I wrote in May 2024. This is a story about The Palmerston Pigeon and his road. It will form part of a collection of Southsea and Portsmouth themed stories/poems, available to buy on our Southsea Vibe website.

The Palmerston Pigeon

The Palmerston Pigeon

On Palmerston Road
It’s quite a sight
Near the shops and pubs
A pigeon takes flight

With shiny blue feathers
And bright orange feet
The Palmerston Pigeon
Is who you will meet

Through crowds he weaves
A perfect landing
The Palmerston Pigeon
His chest expanding

Pigeons are social
They do like to talk
Well, it’s more a “coo-coo”
They say when they walk

Yes they are vocal
And it’s not all about food
Sometimes there fighting
Sometimes there rude

With a flap of their wings
And a flick of their tail
They strut and they coo
Everyday without fail

The Palmerston Pigeon
The king of his road
A “coo-coo” so loud
Your ears will explode

Strutting and pacing
The mindset of a winner
But what makes him happy
Is feeding him dinner

His road, his rules
This is what was said
“Give me some snacks
Or I’ll poop in your head!”
