September 19, 2018

Location: Fellsmere, Little League Park

I am known as a Black Vulture
My legs look white, but they're not.
My legs appear white because I poop on them
To help me keep cool when it's hot.

In addition, because I eat dead stuff,
I come in contact with toxins and such.
My poop is acidic and kills bacteria
That might be on something I touched.
