“Jackdaws would really love my big sphinx of quartz”

They do so love it,

so much, in fact,

that I have to hide it.

As a rule, like Magpies,

Jackdaws are attracted to shiny things,

the glistening of lost wedding rings

and things that go bling in the light.

My big Sphinx of quartz

is very precious to me,

and I would hate for it to be

stolen by a sable clad aviator

for their collection.

Correction: I would really hate it –

even though it is fictional,

just a thing of words.
