the South Georgia pipit
(The island of South Georgia, home to unique
species of pipit and pintail, has finally been
declared clear of rats and mice after 250 years
following a decade-long eradication campaign.)
Down in South Georgia
Bait-dropping choppers fought
Good news for denizens,
Ends threat to nests.
If you have any thoughts on this poem, Jerome Betts would
