And A Partridge In A Pear Tree: Part IV Four Calling Birds

Continuing on our twelve part poem with a new stance on A Partridge in a Pear Tree, we now meet the Calling Birds.  For the full text please visit here

And then if that is not enough
Four calling birds arrive
And dance around the garden so
In time to the hand jive

They flap their wings upon their thighs
And clap their hands just so
Then slide around to jive in time
With hammer feet to go

Then with their music blaring loud
They turn and flick their thumbs
But yes you’ve guessed the partridge thinks
He won’t make them his chums

But then jiving alongside them
The French Hens join in too
And turtle doves check out the jig
Oh such hullabaloo

And there right on the garden lawn
They all do the hand jive
Being born to hand jive baby
The warmth helps them survive

“Oh Lord” cries out the old Partridge
“Do save me on this day
For all have gone quite crackers now
“What else is there to say”
