The Cuckoo That Couldn't

Is destiny carved or does instinct win out?
What causes a species to thrive or thin out?
Are queries and theories the puzzles they seem?
Let's hark to a cuckoo tale spun from a dream.

There once was a cuckoo who happened to grow
Into a rare nestling that needed to know,
About all the whispers and strange twittered words
That designate cuckoos as crazy weird birds.

[Hata Bildir]
