  WHAT BIRDS MIGHT BE SAYING TO US, IF ONLY WE COULD HEAR IT

We can fly, and you can’t! So suck on that
Some of us migrate for thousands of miles each year
We find our way by detecting changes in air pressure
You think you are so great, so brilliant, so smart
With your flying machines belching foul fumes into the air
Roaring so loud we can’t even count the decibels
You shoot us down for sport
You tricked some of us into a deal with the devil – that is, YOU –
To give up their freedom in order to feed your insatiable appetites
Well Ha Ha we gave you BIRD flu in 1918
But we are descended from the mighty dinosaurs
We create art cooperatively just by flying in groups
What can you do?
Wipe out everyone’s home
How clever of you
