Ten years ago, there was a cock
Who lived up to his name.
For though he left us all well-fed,
He left the yard in shame.
Replaced was he by one who was
A very silly goose.
That goose got cooked; he cooked himself;
A danger being loose!
And with him was a vulture,
And that vulture sure was mean.
He swooped down, getting us in war
that plucked us all quite clean.
I could not rest until the two of them
Were good and gone,
Praying I’d not have to watch
That grey goose on the lawn.
Another - grinning, wrinkly-necked -
On TV bobble-bobbling,
Paced with worn-out rhetoric
He was fond of gobble-gobbling.
And by him was his sidekick,,
Female version of a “Quayle.”
I hoped inside the white barn
that chick would never dwell.
The other bird, a darker fowl,
“said” he didn’t want a war.
He was called by some a “chicken"
But at least cared for the poor!
So for November’s bird
He was voted on one day -
The turkey that was chosen
Before Thanksgiving Day.
Two years have past and nothing's changed
The same old cuckoo song.
And I don’t see a good bird yet
To even come along.
How sad there’s no bird like the one
who from a forest came,
Then presided in the white barn.
Now a statue bears his name.
Like an eagle, symbol of
this stretch of land was he.
But since his time, few birds have flown
much higher than a tree.
It’s geese and quails and chickens
and turkeys growing here
while people on this vast great land
are filling up with fear.
I'd hoped our newest turkey were
an eagle in disguise,
and that he’d get to take us soaring
into bluer skies.
For how much longer can our farm
keep running all amuck,
in which case we’re all better off
electing Donald Duck!

If you knew my struggle would you try to
convince me that I'm gone make it
If you knew how bad I was hurting would
you try to take that pain away or just savor it
If you knew how much I loved you
would you continue to do me wrong
would you change your ways or press
repeat and play that same ol song
If you could grant my prayers
just think about it, would you?
No matter what your friends say
even though you had a rough past
would it cross ya mine that I'm
loving you unconditionally & true
If I showed you my inner self
would you be able to handle it
or would you runaway and just be
another statistic of my list of abandonment
Could I count on you to be as honest as me
would you think I was full of it
when I say all I desire in life is just to be free
Would you care If I died tomorrow knowing
you didn't appreciate when while I was living
Would you try to understand why I lived
the way I live with thanksgiving & repentance
If I told you the harsh truth of what
I really thought about life would you
or could you sympathize even though
there were no more tears coming from my eyes
How would you react If I had to erase you from
my life because of how you live yours
would you plead wit me not to or just point
me to the door.
