Dodo has wings but can't fly.
Flimflam wings flip flop flutter,
Flapping flimsy flight feathers
Fails to get lift off...

Hobbit Luck
There was a young hobbit named Frodo
Whose kind are now dead as the dodo
He got rid of the ring
So much trouble that thing
Now he's got his eternal mojo...

Love's Longing

we cruise the road by late noon
as winter roses greet us,
their petals yearning for sunlight
like our love's despair

Babies (written by 9 year old girl)
I am a baby
I am only three
I 'll be four on my birthday
And I like acting like a baby
Because you get to suck your thumb
And your Mommy gives you baby food
And your Mommy is a dodo booty head

A basket of red yarn balls
     fell to the floor and scattered.
          Temptation was just too great -
               kitty unraveled.

Premium Member What Did The Dodo Do To Upset God?
While other birds ran away and hid,
That is not what the dodo did
And, sadly, being ill-equipped to thrive
Designed stupidity could not survive.
Assuming divine intelligence, it's odd;
What did the dodo do to upset God?

Dodo Bird
Have you heard of the dodo? Where did they go? Those birds were so precious. They lived on Mauritius. As a species among the rest, it must have failed the survival test. A few centuries ago, they went away. None of them can be seen today.

Days the son stayed by the bed
and with his hand on his dads
heart, he felt the last flutter-
       love is forever.

Gosh darn and golly gee, remember those nasty phrases They've gone the way of the dodo, but a real conundrum it raises What could be more expressive When frustration becomes oppressive Perhaps “gee willickers” or maybe even “goodness gracious”

God with a dodo beside him
The mad hatter thinks i am insane
God doesnt take credit for me he looks at me with disbelief with a dodo at his side
Sunlight fears my touch
Rain comes from within
Clouds class me as a close friend
Making my brain go to the place it cannot find
Words hiding in the pages
and emotion dies before your eyes...

Now They Are Gone
Extinction is the end of something that used to be alive
Now it is forever gone and cannot be revived
Mastodons, dodo birds and dinosaurs once were
Now they’re just a memory, a fossil or a blur
Will mankind be the next in line of things that used to be
Or will we all be saved in time by something we can’t see

Red Sky
I've heard, “Red skies at morning,
Sailors take warning," - hogwash.
My words to rising red skies
YOU threaten MY day?

Your spell does not block my hope,
you are not a weatherman,
you wait and see, Mr. Sky, 
clear, blue skies by noon.

You dodo bird
On the ground as awkward’s be

Holocene Extinction

                      Dodo the dead had halcyon days on her native shore
                  Like halcyon birds she was happy in heaven’s ground floor
                                  Hounds and crews did her confuse
                                    Struck the land with evil cues
                 Filled the air with wings of greed, naive Dodo was no more...

Girls and trcks
A womans lies,
can't help but believe if you try,
your so madly in love,
you want to give her dove,
but yet she lies through her teeth,
squeezing you of every  breath,
does she know what she wants,
or does she just want to taunt,
why not be honest,
because she can't be the strongest,
so the games of the mind,
is what makes you blind,
i am not prejudice,
 but some dodo this...

by Ron Wilson aka Vee Bdosa

Down into the sea
she will lay in wait, to see
if tomorrow comes.

Who has any care
if the whale is dying there
is there anyone?

If she goes too deep
pressure brings the endless sleep
she has come undone.

Her last sound would be
like the cry that no one's heard,
of the dodo bird.
