THE EARLY BIRD


The early bird gets the worm
So what – I’m a vegan.
~~~
~~~
The early bird gets the worm
Don’t worry - there are plenty more in the garden.
~~~
~~~
The early bird gets the worm
Another reason to stay in bed.
~~~
~~~
The early bird gets the worm
He’d get a Danish pastry if he gets up later.
~~~
~~~
The early bird gets the worm
Who the heck wants a worm anyway?
~~~
~~~
The early bird gets the worm
And the Doctor prescribes tablets.


The early bird gets the worm
Why does he bring it to me?
The early bird gets the worm
I only get muesli.


The early bird gets the worm
What time does the bird get out of bed to catch the worm?


The early bird gets the worm
Thr night owl got the bird


EARLY BIRD POEMS BY BRIAN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I never hear the early Bird
I'm still in BED ~ how absurd
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Still in bed ~ a cup of tea
The KOOKABURRA is laffing at me


The early bird gets the worm
The rat gets its eggs.

    I apologise for the typo in my contribution. The early bird apparently fails to see typing errors. It is uneditable stuck in the middle 😕

    • Michael Edwards

      Worry not Sylvia and thank you for participating.

      I guess I’m too late.
      This bird has not caught her worm. So I’m left with the crumbs. It’s not allowing me to participate. It’s only allowing me to make comments. Oh well 😔 c’est la vie!

      Great job everyone!

        Mea Culpa - I've changed it to 15 stanzas

      • BRIAN & ANGELA

        THANKS UNCLE MIKE: You opted for 6 not 15 so Fusionfreak BRIAN beat me to it here is mine:

        We dont need to eat WORMS in New Zealand
        Weve got 10 Sheep for every Human

        The EARLY BIRD gets WORMS
        The EARLY LADY gets MEN
        Some turn out to be WORMS

        The DAWN CHORUS does a lot forus
        Its the Early Bird : So I have heard!

        Great FUSION : Love Angela XXXX

        • Michael Edwards

          Thanks Angela - I've changed it now - hopefully it will accept more.

          the early bird got the worm
          the early bird got the germ
          now his belly is aching
          i laughed so hard my heart is aching
