dream of flying

One Minute Rhyme Mark XXI : Ostrich

If I were an ostrich
with my head down in the sand
I’d dream of flying backwards
on the other hand
but ostriches have no fingers
and neither have they thumbs
and their wings
aren’t made for things
like flying just for fun
so I think I’d be another bird
a smaller one guess
that doesn’t dig into the dirt
and get its hair a mess.
