Strange Bedfellows

Strange Bedfellows
Words by Leslie Noyes

I can’t get wet,
You don’t like the dry,
You lumber about,
I love to fly.

I dine on worms,
You feast on grass,
You’re quite large,
I’m just a little lass.

I’ve heard you bellow,
You’ve listened to me sing
I admire your ears,
You envy my wings.

You can’t build a nest,
I can’t capsize a boat,
You fear nothing,
I never learned to float.

We aren’t much alike
In our habits and ways,
Yet we manage to co-exist
For all of our days

Despite our differences
We share this earth
I’m your best friend,
And you’re my perch.

      1. Cheers Leslie…I’ve not been called that previously and assume it’s American for a man of great demeanour, a muscular type, testosterone charged go-getter? Oh, Shirl just chanced by as I was typing this comment mumbling ‘tosser’ in my direction!

      2. Well Leslie, I called her a ‘doll’ and she replied, ‘What are you after?’ and carried on cooking a dubious meal seemingly mainly compiled of caramelized thing that shouldn’t be caramelized…kept my mouth shut on that one, needed a ladder to shut off the smoke alarms!
