Gull Ability

A seagull’s insistence
on grabbing attention
by noisy contention
is heard with persistence
while seeking subsistence
with little suspension.

By steely precision,
a steadfast defiance
and cold self-reliance,
it makes its decision
while flaunting derision
at those in compliance.

Through lucrative toils,
the gull claims its spoils.
