"Oh, Mama! Mama! Look at me!
I've learned to fly from tree to tree!
I've learned to fly from branch to grass,
And back again. So do I pass?
May I go hunt for worms and such?
I want to, Mama, very much!
I'm big enough to know what's good,
To find and feed myself my food.
"His mama cooed, "Now listen here!
You must beware of dangers near,
Especially when you're on the ground,
Four-legged beasts may be around."
So Junior glided from the nest.
"I'll find some worms, the very best."
He spotted one, but it was small.
"That wouldn't make a bite at all!"
Ignoring it, he pecked with zeal.
"There's bound to be a better meal.
At last! A worthwhile worm to munch."
But Allie pounced upon her lunch.
His mama's cry had come too late
To spare him from his gruesome fate.
As Allie washed her whiskers long,
She heard the mama bird's sad song.
"Had Junior just been satisfied
With what the Lord did first provide,
He would have known to flit away,
And lived to fly another day."
