.....the other things are ears


Owl said had horns
Threatened all birds with them
One day, Adicol, black bird
Decided to prove if owl
Had horns or not
Black bird came to owl
His nephew and said
‘’can I shaved your hair’’
‘’okay, but take care horns
Are sharp edge and tip, it
May cut or pierce you’’
‘’I know ‘’ said Adicol
With cunning he shaved
Touched horns gently
Owl felt touch and said
‘’ Don’t touch horns
It will harm you’’
‘’I know’’ said Adicol
But continued to touch gently
He found them soft and were ears
Not horns as owl claimed
Adicol flew up and alarm
‘’ …… birds, birds, , , ,
…the other things are ears.
The other things on owl head
Are not horns but ears
All birds swooped at owl head in mock
Owl flew, flew and flew and all birds
Were running after him in mock
They cursed him ‘’ evil eye, evil eye……
Birds chased owl for whole until night
Where they not see him
For this owl stops to move in day
But at night to avoid being mocked
So came proverb, ..the other thing
Are ears

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
