Jumbo jets versus jackdaws and jays

[b][b]If only we could fly like    
those that tweet or hoot  
without aid of jet or  
parachute    
   
For I sure don't like    
wings that roar    
just so they can take off    
and soar    
   
Ah, to fly without petrol, diesel    
or fuel    
Oh, to halt that taloned midair    
duel *[b]
 
   
Birds they don't pollute    
the air    
nor need they any airline    
fare    
   
So if only I too could rise    
and glide    
and let the wind be my    
sole guide    
   
I'd be happy to fly all the    
way to 'em' faraway stars    
if I was assured I'd risk    
no charring scars.    
   
Flying without aviation    
formalities    
I could be sightseeing    
many more cities    
   
Ah I so wish to fly just    
like a jay or jackdaw    
Then I'd fly across all and    
every border    
For I'd know nor follow    
no man-made law![/b]
