The Bugwug

I had a guide upon my shoulder

The wisest bird that was much older

Than all the years that measure time

And he spoke in riddle and in rhyme

‘Dear Cora the land is full of danger

Especially when you are a stranger

Walk wisely and do not lose sight

Of creatures with an appetite

For they’ll eat you if they are able

And serve you at their dinner table’…

I listened closely to each word

He was indeed the brightest bird

Each step I took was placed with care

So do walk with me if you dare…
