A moral for a bird?


 

My brewers’ barrel sprung a leak

The ale flowed down the casket

A bird sat chirping on the rim

I had no need to ask it.

 

You pecked away to get a drink

Your thirst misplaced I feared

Your flight so shoogly, your song off key:

“Don’t fly when you ‘re impaired.” 

 

 


The Barrel and the Bird

Delightful! Could the birds who got into some one's barrel(s) be responsible for some of the airplanes' mishaps? Just a thought.
Continued success~
