"It's not true!" -- Were it merely said.
It's puzzling! I would have thought
by someone it must have been taught
to recognise a loaf of bread.
Not a thing to which it was bred;
that resembles not a wheatsheaf.
This act almost beggars belief!
If this bird were any younger
would it be driven by hunger?
Were it so, would we still cry "thief!"?
Prompt: FOWC with Fandango — thief
Poetry form: Décima
