|The Cuckoo, she’s a pretty bird,
And so’s the Turtle Dove,
But the fairest bird among them all
Is one you’d never love!
She’s the Vulture, oh so graceful,
Watch her gliding high above;
The vulture is the fairest bird,
And she deserves our love!
I call her fair for she never steals,
The Osprey dives to strike her prey;
If there's reward for toil and strife
|"Vulture with Culture," from APE IN A CAPE, by Fritz Eichenberg, ™1952, 1980.|
