Birds

I would not want to be a bird,
having to fly around with my
mouth open to try to catch

a meal, like the flycatchers do.
I would not like to have to spend
all day pecking at the ground

to pickup what ever specks of
food I could like a chicken or a wild
turkey has to do. I would not like

hammering my head into a tree
trunk just to get a bite to eat like
the red-headed woodpecker does.

I think that I would go hungry
an awful lot of the time, and that’s
just not for me.
