Dodos – Dead Or Alive

the_bad_childs_book_of_beasts_pg_36-2

 

as bricks to skulls

if truth were known

 

so, hush, little birdies, hush

 

as bullet to brain

if plans laid bare

 

so, shush, little birdies, shush

 

as brain matter mushed

at wisdom received

 

believe, little birdies, believe

 

as guilty as charged

if questioning tales

 

tsk, tsk, little birdies, tsk, tsk

 

as dead as said birdies

if survival is moot

 

it’s the news, little birdies, our news

 

as free as clipped wings

if rattling cage

 

down, dodo birdies, stay down

 

to soar with feathers of flight

if phoenix shall rise from the dust

regenerate, restored anew

arise, brave birdies, needs must
