Bird on a twig

Oh, little birdie on a twig

You're not as colourful (or big)

As iPhone five

You can't survive...the competition

Your nest is facing demolition.

Underneath your habitat

A wealth of coal, now fancy that!

Your days are done!

Industry's the one that lives and thrives

And manufactures iPhone fives.

Michael Leunig

Light and dark sides to that poem Woko. I thought initially that you had written it until I saw the Leunig credit.
