Like the Grackles

Oh, to do like the Grackles┬╣,
  though not in their silent ubiquitousness,
  nor their incessant mischievous larceny,
  and especially not in the nerve of their
    boorish arrogance,
But when ten in a row, side by side,
  lift their pointed beaks skyward high,
  like a row of nuns in St. Tim's front pew,
  clasped hands held aloft, all out worship,
    in all sincerity, of their Almighty God.
