This is the first poem in my new e-book Bird Beaks & Bee's Knees on Wattpad.com, a collection of bird-brained poems that attempt to answer the following question:  What can you do when you're as busy as a bee and life bugs you to the point where you cry fowl?  And there you go, barking at the geese, ducks and swans, swatting carpenter bees with your tennis racket and drowning ants with your water hose as if that will help.  The Woodpecker Gazette calls it "A silly, idiotic and unintelligent must-read." 

So as not to run afoul of the grammar police, please understand that my poetic license is up to date, misspelled words are intentional and the use of puns is clearly authorized.  Why in the world would I use puns?  To make it more punny, of course!   Ok, I'll stop now.  Maybe...

Lord Love A Duck Quacky little bird call When you hear it coming duck! If farmer Fudd is after you You're running out of luck Totin' shotgun and bird shot, Son, he's aiming not to please He's sneaking close behind you bird You better hold your sneeze Cuz your feathers are a tickler Your bill is orange and bright While the farmer is a stickler He will sup on bird tonight Lord love a duck! Of him you mustn't run a fowl Pain from freshly plucked feathers Will be enough to make you howl!

A fun and delightful, lighthearted read, Mark! Congratulations on your e-book news, I admire your energy and love the title of the e-book. When I'm too busy for my body and life bugs me, I bark and swat air with phones that won't change channels or clear like a calculator and remotes that won't call people or do math! Have fun and fulfillment with your e-book.

CayCay, thank you for your delightful comment and kind encouragement. I see we both "bark and swat" at things when we're as busy as a bee and life bugs us :) ~Mark
