The Fable of Two Birds: a Poem
In a mighty kingdom very far away
lived this wisest bird in entire wood,
hunting most of night, sleeping most of day
this owl was known for patience and a happy mood.
Along came new neighbor to the branch above
and strange was the way he kept yapping
some birds would say it was about love
until he revealed it was called "rapping".
Audience soon gathered to listen to the rapper,
while sleepy owl couldn't help her yawning
then she even dozed off to miss her supper
but then stayed up straight till the next morning.
Insulted got our rapper by this yawning bird
showing no respect for his artistic chanting,
so he asked the owl if she was a kind of nerd
and continued fussing, and cussing, and ranting.
Owl was listening calmly, thinking that was rap
then flew up few branches right above that rapping,
and when he was done, with everyone clapping,
she dropped on the rapper some rewarding crap.
Now, moral of the story for all to know
is about music that has to be right
sometimes dynamic, sometimes slow,
for listening at days, or listening at night.
But no matter what, don't let it be rap
for those working day, or those working night,
if you don't want reward to look like a crap,
so play real music, and keep it light.
