Food for thought



A little bird sat in a sycamore tree

And thought and thought what it would like to be
I wish I wish I were not me
it spotted a mouse as it made its way
through blades of grass
It's tiny head turning left and right as it
foraged for food it scurried about its tiny ears
perked at a sound


As the bird watched the black snake slithered
and with rapid speed struck out and swallowed the
mouse

The little bird in the sycamore tree
thought and thought A snake I'd rather be
as it chirped in glee
the snake you see had swallowed the mouse in one great gulp
and slithered away without a thought

Deep in the underbrush a Mongoose
watched as the snake made its way
close to where it sat

Quietly crawling on agile limbs it waited ever so patiently.
the snake had not a chance as pounce the Mongoose did.
it's sharp teeth going deep

I wish I wish a Mongoose I could be
it ate the snake that ate the rat and as it sat
consuming its catch


A tiger approached and the Mongoose was no more.
As the little bird sat in the tree it thought and thought
I know what I'd rather be I'll be a bird and fly high above the tree
just as happy as can be

      Beautiful story. Birds have freedom of flight. Birds can go anywhere they want. I often wish I was a bird to explore the horizons above and bask in its surroundings.

      Thank you, Lisavanvorst, nice to know I'm not the only one. Don't we all wish we could be something else or someone else.
