All would rejoice
when the Ostrich sang;
they'd gather their families
and bask in the rays.
I always felt small
compared to that bird
but when she stopped singing,
I cried.

Did Jesus wear garments
of feathery delight?
If pigeons had teeth,
they'd bite biscuits and crime.
Last Wednesday, my niece
turned white from bad clams.
Sadly she perished,
along with her clams.

So heed theoreticians
when noontime comes near;
for your phantoms disperse
amongst whispers so dear.
Truly red now is the
antiquarian tide,
but close your eyes inward
to see how I died.

Gravy boats sail
deep into the maroon
webwork, but doomed,
they repent and turn back
