There was a fat bird sitting on the table.
My wife thought it was real and screamed!
But, it was only ceramic.
Just a painted model of a bird.
Nothing about it was dynamic -
it just sat there able
to do nothing else.
because it didn't have a pulse.
Never having even dreamed
of being real, it didn't try to fly.

A bird that can't even fly
may as well dry up and die.
