The Beautiful Jay


There once was a beautiful jay

Who scared the song birds away

Not to be seen

As bully or mean

It’s just that his song was a bit of a bray,


So he thought he might teach

The song birds to screech

They said “NO WAY!”

“You silly old jay.”

“You’ll make us sound like gulls on a beach!”


Then the jay knew

In his heart to be true…

He’ll never sing great.

‘Tis his fate…

But damn! He looks good in his feathers of blue…
