Aggie Ostrich


Aggie   

 the 
Ballad of Aggie Ostrich



My name is Aggie Ostrich -  I live beyond the sea.


Across the breadth of Africa, you'll find the likes of me!


I have some ways of acting that you may find rather strange.


You see it's just how I am made - and how I roam the range.



                                                                                                                 

Someone took my pretty plumes and put them on their hat.


Leather from my hide made shoes - not so from a rat!


I'm really tired of being used to make you look so good!


When using me means I must die! I'm even good for food!




Not looking for approval now. Just tired of the lie


That I stick my head into the sand, when enemies come by!


This little fable's fooled a lot of folks throughout the years.


And now it's time to bury it! Just bury it, my dears!




The fable that I put my head into a sandy hole!


Its HUMANS do the hiding  --  to blame me is their goal!


A truth will never go away 'cuz you don't want to see!


Open your eyes, lift up your head -  confront the evil, like me!
