We all need to laugh. And some people make it easier to laugh. A lot of times Mira is one of those people. On the weekend we watched "How to Eat Fried Worms" in which there was a part where a girl was teaching a 5 year old boy a song about birds. One line went something like "One little bird fell out of the nest, when a cat ate him up his mama said "it's for the best". This encouraged her to make up her own song.
We shall call it "Black Humor" and you can call yourself forewarned.
I'm So Glad I'm Not a Bird
One little crow by the side of the road, pecking at a roadkill lunch.
He was slow to fly, so when a truck came by, all his little birdie bones went crunch.
A robin didn't know there were window panes ahead
So he crushed his little birdie skull, the windows killed him dead.
A sparrow ducked a car to avoid becoming pulp
but was spotted by an eagle and was eaten, GULP.
A swallow flew along the road, a stupid thing to do,
The traffic was quite heavy, he didn't think it through
He didn't know a moving truck was coming up the hill
Wow! Look at all the feathers in that truck's front grill.
A grouse was eaten by a fox, and now he's "you know what"
Those little round brown balls that come out of a fox's butt.
A kitty ate a finch and now he's pussy poo
I'm so glad I'm not a birdie, aren't you?
By the way, don't ask me what is happening in that first picture. It was on the camera when I downloaded some photos.
