RDP Thursday: BRIM
Today I was on my FB page looking for some pictures to use on my blog and out of curiosity I visited some of my friends pages .
I was treated to pictures flowers and sunshine and green grass and blue skies. My news feed was brimming with pastel charm.
Then I thought to myself- hey I should post a picture of my Spring Day too!
But I couldn’t because the moment I could have captured and shared was gone.
This morning I was on my loading dock and there were two crows sitting on top of the fence near the railroad tracks.
From what I understand they like to dive at people, I’m guessing that’s why the homeless people who used to hang around my loading dock have been absent. Anyway, when I am out there all they do is preen and talk
This morning was different.
The moment I stepped out onto the dock they sort of- I don’t know raged is the word that best describes how they sounded.
I looked around to see what had them so upset- nothing was there.
Then I Iooked down and I saw two dead rats.
I’m guessing they had eaten some of the poison from the traps that the building over from mine put out for them.
I went in and got a shovel and a hefty bag and I put them inside of it and then I called to have them taken away. You can’t leave them out you know, and if you don’t dispose of them properly other animals can eat them and meet the same fate.
I HATE poison traps. It’s the death trap that keeps on giving.
When the rats were gone, the crows settled down and when I went out there at the end of the day they chatted at me like always and then they flew off.
So that was how my Sunny Spring Morning went. It wasn’t Facebook material but I guess it matters just as much. I suppose I could share my moment there- even if it wasn’t dripping with pastels. It was dripping with life and death.
