Birds To Make You Smile
Here are nine Toucans in a tree.
And a Blue Footed Booby sent by me.
A Blue Guinea Fowl, hear him squawk.
A beautiful Parrot that can talk.
Three silly birdies in a row.
This one's ghoulish don't you know.
Two dancing Boobies to make you laugh.
A silly necked Ostrich like a Giraffe.
Here's two eagle's to give you strength.
And a pretty toucan of no great length.
Another Toucan with bold bright stripes.
And two sweet Puffins without any gripes.
You're not like a Shoe Bill with its beak.
Nor like a vulture with his reek.
So may this Toucan bring you cheer.
And also this Nighthawk ogling here.
I hope this Parakeet makes you smile.
And this silly Pelican laugh a while.
Soon you'll be like this Vulture, "In The Pink"!
And strutting like this Secretary Bird I think.
You're not like this Cassowary and his feet.
You don't have a wattle like Turkey meat.
So don't be a goose and loudly squawk.
But think of this Bird of Paradise when you talk.
I've sent some birdies swiftly your way,
In hopes that they cheer you up today.
