Sore Wings Are For Birds

 

Sore Wings Are For Birds.

Featherweight eighth notes,

that sit near a window

and greet a new day,

as we wake and we hear them,

in our hearts we say,

how lovely it'd be

to just once fly away,

on a song and a prayer,

someplace where clouds play.



But the truth is that worms

taste quite awful at dawn,

there's cats who will eat you

when your fishing a lawn,

and your life is short lived

what with windows and cars,

think I'd rather get high

at some fave local bars.

Leave the sore wings to birds

with some gin I'll go far.

after six or so shots,

I'll be seeing some stars!
