The Pigeon Shooting Analysis

Author: poem of Robert Service Type: poem Views: 3

Sponsored Links

They say that Monte Carlo is

A sunny place for shady people;

But I'm not in the gambling biz,

And sober as a parish steeple.

so though this paradisal spot

The devil's playground of the rich is,

I love it and I love it not,

As men may sometimes fall for bitches.

I lazed beneath the sky's blue bliss,

The sea swooned with a sequin glimmer;

The breeze was shy as maiden kiss,

The palms sashayed in silken shimmr.

The peace I soaked in every pore

did me more good than ten religions . . .

And then: Bang! Bang! my joy was o'er;

Says I: "There goes them poor dam pigeons."

I see them bob from out their traps,

the swarded green aroud them ringing;

bewildered, full of joy perhaps,

With sudden hope of skyway winging.

They blink a moment at the sun,

They flutter free of earthy tether . . .

A fat man holds a smoking gun,

A boy collects some blood and feather.

And so through all the sainted day,

Bang! Bang! a bunch of plumage gory.

Five hundred francs they cost to slay,

And few there live to tell the story . . .

Yet look! there's one so swift to fly,

Despite the shots a course he's steering . . .

Brave little bird! he's winging high,

He's gained the trees - I feel like cheering.

In Monte Carlo's garden glades

With dreamful bliss one softly lingers,

And lazily in leafy shades

The doves pick breadcrumbs from one fingers . . .

Bang! Bang! Farewell, oh sylvan courts!

Where peace and joy are sweetly blended . . .

God curse these lousy Latin sports!

My pigeons scat, my dream is ended.
