Picnic Postponed

The plan was a picnic
For my beau and me.
The only table we could find
Was under an oak tree.

As we drew near the table,
With our basket in hand,
We saw that we needed
A completely new plan.

For the table was completely awash
In black and white tiny turds.
Apparently above this picnic spot
Lived some very prolific birds.
