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!
