A Cockatoo that I once knew

A Cockatoo that I once knew
Went to live at the City Zoo
To get there he just flew and flew
At the Zoo he ate too much stew
It made him fat; his tummy grew
Until he was as big as two

He flapped his wings but could not fly
He was too big to reach the sky
It didn’t matter how he’d try
He said “Oh look how big am I”
And a single tear formed in his eye

That cockatoo started exercise
To all that weight, said his goodbyes
Like he was taking off a disguise
He got slim before our eyes
He felt real good – I tell no lies
And now he flies and flies and flies.

About a foolhardy florilegium

Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri, quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes.
