The Wise Owl

The Wise Owl
Sat on his stump
Thinking wise thoughts.
But Wise Owl rarely smiled.


Once in a while
The Wise Owl
Got drunk.

And though getting drunk is certainly not wise
To no one’s surprise
After drinking a few Whisky and Ryes
Like the good ol’ boys
In American Pie
A smile
Was seen
To appear
On the face of
The Wise Owl.

If only for while.

Then the hangover kicked in.

And Wise Owl returned
To his stump again.
