Don't Worry, Be Happy : I Am A Kiskadee

I am a fearless Kiskadee
Sitting on a branch of this tree
Singing my theme song happily
With a Kis Ka Dee Kis Ka Dee

I sing my song very sweetly
Seeking to make others happy
Filling them with ecstasy
With its rhythm and melody

My message is not to worry
Despite how things in life may be
Don't let them make you feel crazy
At all times, strive to be happy

One can state things that are likely
But no one knows what things will be
So keep your chin up cheerfully
And sing Kis Ka Dee Kis Ka Dee. 

The Great Kiskadee (Pitangus Sulpharatus)  is indigenous to Central and South America, the Caribbean and Southern Texas.

lovely personification poem - it may be worth soup mailing Andrea to see if she will accept a bird not on the list:-) Hugs Jan xx

Jan, thanks again! It would not be fair to others who may have wanted to submit an entry on a bird not on the list but refrained from doing so. As I said, I am happy with my poem. In my tropical environment, I see and hear these birds all the time. I have always been impressed by the vigour and vitality of their song, and I tried to express it in this poem. Cheers!

Thanks, Jan. I composed this with the intention of entering her contest. It was only after I checked that I realized that my bird was not on her list. She stated explicitly that she was only accepting entries based on her list. Personally, I think there should be no restrictions on the type of bird. However, it is her contest. I am very happy with my poem nevertheless. Best regards!
