Cormorant

Cormorant
was a word he used
to describe the bird he saw outside his office window.
I’m sure it was a crow he saw – we were just too far away from any water,
and that he was simply showing off.
I wanted to correct him
but I kept quiet;
sometimes it’s better to let a fool
loudly express his stupidity.
