Poem of the Day

A Bird Unique

Hoo hoo hoo, and he haw hay
laughed the Kooka on his way.

After him the Magpies chased
winging past in reckless haste.

What was it that the Kooka heard
to cause the Magpies get so stirred?

An ornithologist rushed to meet
a Magpie walking on two sore feet.

‘I’m scared to fly,’ the Magpie wailed
‘They laughed at me because I failed.’

He then limped on, a bird unique,
an unhappy agoraphobic freak.

oooOooo
