Oh, To Be An Ostrich

 

You’ll not see many ostriches wearing a deep frown

for the simple reason that things don’t get us down.

 

When confronted with an ugly truth we simply will not see,

but close our eyes completely, just go ahead and let it be.

 

Our long legs are good for racing, we can really pick up speed

but it is those necks of ours that do so fulfil a need.

 

If danger is approaching and things seem so far from grand

we have a trick that we perform -- bury our heads in the sand.

 

The world might be quite dangerous, but the threats we do not see,

are simply not a danger to the likes of you and me.
