Mockingbirds are quite a feat
Somewhat more than you’d think.
During the season that they molt,
They all seem sad in sync.

If you feed them eggs and potatoes,
They’ll turn to black and white.
They’ll eat fifteen to twenty minutes
All day and most of the night.

They make up most of their songs,
Yet they borrow ten percent.
Tis a shame we think they mock the songs
When they make melody as God has meant.
