Woodpeckers Pecking Wood

Sap suckers don’t suck sap, they lick.
The sap it makes the bugs taste good,
their birdy magic makes it stick.
Sap suckers don’t suck sap, they lick,
they dig a hole and make it slick,
sap stays put while they scour the wood.
Sap suckers don’t suck sap, they lick,
the sap it makes the bugs taste good.

Note to city dwellers:  sapsuckers are a type of woodpecker and their holes do not hurt trees nor does their wood pecking give them a headache.

Note to NaPoWriMo browsers:   Today’s poem is a triolet.    If you don’t know what that is, neither did I until I learned at the site which commands me to write these little vignettes each day during April http://www.napowrimo.net/
