Lone Star; the Mockingbird

byMy Erotic Trail©

'Lone Star'
The lone legged Mocking Bird!

The founder scene
was the drive thru, Dairy Queen
A baby bird hobbled and wobbled
across the hot pavement
out the car door I went!

The Lone Star State
didn't want their State Bird
they said to say,
"It's final words."
For a wing was broke and a leg too,
there was nothing any one could do.
A leg was dangling by a thread of dead skin
the vet said,
"do some snipping."

Wrapped the wing and made it a home,
open to the whole living room.
My wife bought crickets from the bait shop
my son caught grasshoppers from around our lot.
I knew where the best fishing worms lived,
to the Mockingbird, supper was fed.

To much surprise, the Mockingbird survived
it found balance with one and a half legs.
It hopped every where till it's wing healed.
When it flew outside it came back in a "Squeal."

Now a name we must give!
The State bird of the Lone Star state
our minds state could relate
miracles that surrounded
this mockingbird's fate,

"Lone Star"
the lone legged mockingbird.

He sang to our lives for quite awhile.
He like to land on our black labs back
or in a soft crash land into a baseball cap.
We finally built a cage the size of a wall
the door was left open unless company called.
For Mockingbirds are fearless and territorial.

A part of the family he became
I still think about him to this day

'Lone Star'
The Lone Legged Mockingbird
