The cry of a seagull

Looking out the window, I see the screeching gulls.
There are many of them screaming loudly.
Living on the simple waves of sound.
Thus guarding their territory and conquering new booty.
As gulls, we too bivouac in noisy colonies.
By screaming, they drown out conspecifics.
Like-minded people find each other on their high legs.
They are connected to each other with their screams.
That's why gulls squawk as loud as they could.
