A BIRD’S LIFE

Pecking from inside a shell, a new born’s knackered;

finally breaking free the fledgling’s battered.

When hungry, just hatched babies often go “crackers”;

ardently waiting to be fed as they gathered.

Fluttering, baby bird found walking, a hazard;

pursuing mom, through the bush, the fledgling staggered.

When learning to fly would a bird first fly backward?

The direction one goes [flies] really does matter!

These birds grow, they learn, whether tired, laggard, knackered—

To survive you must fly to the four Winds, scattered.
