Wanna laugh? Then guess What am I?

What am I?

§

There’s a far cry in the sky

Oh, what am I?

§

Did you know?

We’ve homes in Wimbledon

Did you know?

We’ve homes by the sea

But you still say common

My feathered friends and I

§

Did you know?

We take offence

While perched on your fence

§

You say we make mess

Well maybe just a little on your dress

Or in your hair while you stare

Well we do like to give and share.

§

Did you know?

We clear your waste

In volume and with haste

Tossed aside crisps and fries

Tossed aside sandwiches

And even dead flies.

§

But did you know?

We hear your terrible cries

We hear your incessant lies

We listen to those who roam

And those without a home

§

You say a curse

But surely no worse

Than our cousins the Hawk

Who still give a squawk

We make little sound

Beaks drumming to the ground

§

You say vermin

But surely a pest no lest

Than our cousins with a crest

Have you tried our egg?

Just kidding – pulling your leg!

§

And as for those posh ones

With their cheep red breast

You feed them nice seed

Coo, fuss and need

While we just sigh

And try not cry

§

You say

Rat of the sky

While we swirl up high

Well we do have feather

But we ain’t no never

Ain’t no never

As common as a rat!

§

And just cos we’re grey

And not white you say

We are Pigeon not dove

We are Pigeon without love!

§§

A few words from my Funny Bone
