Damn Robins



It's four o'clock in the morning It's still pitch black outside And the cute little male robin Is serenading his bride! It's really cute and sweet and stuff But if I only had a gun I'd blast that frigging robin Right off to kingdom come! Doesn't this sweet young birdie know I'm not finished my beauty sleep Sure like to wring his scrawny neck So he couldn't let out a peep! At risk of sounding a wee bit cruel I'll bake up some robin pie Garnished with a swallow's beaks And feathers piled on high! There should be a law to allow us To end their sweet serenade To permit us to cook them in a stew After letting them marinate! © Jack Ellison 2013

    My cats starts meowing and herds the dogs into the bedroom every morning WAY before the alarm clock... Then if I'm not up right away... Here comes the dragon, only he doesn't serenade me... He jumps into bed next to me and claims ALL the covers. Silly dragon wants breakfast in bed... Then later he grabs my cumphy couch and wants lunch there too... Says he needs his beauty sleep! Silly dragon! All the sleep in the world won't help him when I get my paint set out this morning. HA! Should be fun!

    Is there no way you can control that dragon guy? Maybe there's some sedative especially for dragons or a tranquilizer or SOMETHING!!! Jackles xoxox
