A Little Bird Told Me

A little bird told me

“Listen only to what wise people have to say“

In a very alarming way

I listened carefully to those I thought were smart

But all I heard was actually a lot of stupid stuff

While I tried the dodge the darts

Poisoned with hatred, bigotry and words really rough

I turned to the little bird and explained what happened

It flew away as if to say,

What did you expect?

 

Sadly even birds seem to understand what is going on.

They know about disrespect

I think they even get

The meaning of reject.

I now watch for that little bird

That appeared to me one day

The little bird that told me

“Listen only to what wise people have to say“
