Ducks Can't Fly

If birds had feathers they will not hang  
On grills, spiced up, roasting aroma 
Feeling the air, with juice  

My taste bud, ready to engage  
Consumed, my lips left with evidence  
Of my indulgence   

If birds have feathers 
Oh but they do   
Well before being unplugged   

Oh but they do  
If birds had feathers to fly 
They would not hang on grills

For they will know to fly 
And not walk, or run, slow enough 
To be caught, by the man with no feather

  1. I think that there are no creatures except those in the far depths of oceans undiscovered by man that can run away from featherless mankind. Even birds with wings that can fly can rarely escape. Good thing that there are many who want freedom for them.

    Also the weekly Theme for each TT will be put up on Sundays. It is up their now and posting will be on Thursday. Thanks for the beautiful poetry.

    God bless.

  2. animals are FAR to trusting...

  3. Excellent take on this image... My thoughts immediately turned to the hapless dodo of Mauritius, so trusting and fearless fo humans that it was hunted to extinction within a few decades of the island's colonisation.

  4. so well said and such a beautiful write

  5. The irony of it is brilliantly portrayed. Beautiful read!

  6. The trick is knowing when to fly away...

  7. Liked the poem and the cartoon. Both creative.

  8. Nice irony, and well written...that cartoon is classic!

  9. Ack! And the poor chickens watching the horror movie! Very droll.I must admit to liking the smell of roasting chicken though. Alas!
