Built Febroe Tough

Post by InfernoFudd » Mon Feb 21, 2011 7:20 am

Fair toothed and clean-shaven, he donned a suit made of bird.
Fine speeches made he, a thousand dollars every word.
He was a man of wealth; he wanted everyone to know,
So every morning he stepped on his brand-new Febroe.
It’s a fine-feathered thing made of gears and soft leather,
And a dozen umbrellas keeping him out of the weather,
A steering wheel, feathered seats, flapping wings and ten lights,
So that everyone would look up and notice the sights.
The beasts of the air, they noticed him to boot.
They stopped him, mid-air, and took revenge on his suit.

Got a Shel Silverstein vibe from this.

1 bird 2 bird red bird avenge slew bird? (I am aware it should be "slain" bird but it isn't as cool that way.)
If I wrote it you can read it unless you sound like Fran Drescher.
