Biodiversity challenge – Lammergeier

Bone meal

Scavenging angel
Takes to the skies,
Gains height,
With calcium prize
Clasped tight.

Carries that weight
In a crooked claw;
All skill and bone,
The talon of fate.

Providence in the fall
Of the marrow,
May the g-force be with you,
Deliver a sliver.

X marks the spot,
Take after take,
Then a lucky break.
Guzzles the lot.

Splinters and shards,
The whole nine yards.
Dish of the day
At the hard rock cafe.
