Strut and bob little Ostrich.

Your jerky motion gives me a stitch.

50 miles an hour you go,

up on big toes, flapping wings to and fro.

I'm sorry, but I can't scratch that itch.

*Imagination is the plaything of fairies. Without imagination we are doomed*

My heart and soul goes into my writing. If I don't bleed a little, I haven't done it right.
