Really Awfully Featherbrained Rhymes


Once, birdies used to go ‘Cheep, cheep,’
But prices which appear
To seem now so extremely steep,
Have made them say, ‘Dear, dear!’

While birds of the more snobbish sort –
Of lineage extensive –
Are chirping of what they have bought
By uttering, ‘Expensive!’

And birds no longer can allow
Themselves to tweet or twitter –
The fact most humans do it now
Has left them feeling bitter.

Some birds continue raucous cries
Without the least restraint –
With crows, it comes as no surprise
They give caws for complaint.

When birdies do a courting song
A purpose is in thought;
To mimic them is very wrong
Till what they’re courting’s caught!

While things whose flight is done at night
Inclined to screech and howl are,
Such creatures giving biggest fright
A version of Screech Owl are.

At Halloween, a type there flies
To make one wet one’s britches …
The Undead flit across the skies,
As well as sundry witches!
