The Secretary Bird

A secretary bird?
How absurd
Beyond all explanation
Professionally dressed
With quills on its crest
And ready for dictation

    Excellent, Jon :). It's an interesting bird, with an impressive wing span in flight!

    Yes, there really is such a bird. How it got its name I don't know. But it has a pen like crest much like a woman secretary might carry pens in her hair bun. Totally absurd to be sure. Love your comments.
