Mockingbird

Poor little mocking bird sitting on a tree
Bothering no one at all...  
Along came 3 crows as cruel as can be
Saying "Are you mocking us you troll"?  

Leave me alone said the mocking bird  
" Why do you feel the need to bully me"?  
Cos that's what we do said the nasty old crow  
Asking "Who said you could sit in our tree"?  
 
But the mocking bird was wise, wiser than an owl,  
So he replied with nothing at all...  
The 3 nasty crows gave him a scowl,  
But the mocking bird proudly stood tall...  
 
One by one they taunted him  
But the mocking bird stood his ground,  
Silence can be a powerful weapon,  
But it's also rather profound..  
 
The crows soon got bored with their cruel taunts and jibes,  
So they started to shower him with stones..  
Clever little mocking bird didnt fly away  
Hes already experienced broken bones...  
 
Eventually the crows would get bored  
And they'd move on to pastures new...  
My mocking bird friend he win that fight  
By teaching them what they never knew...  
 
That simply by being courageous  
And by never backing down,  
Not to react in a challenging way,  
Or by behaving like a clown..  
 
If your smaller in stature it doesn't matter,  
Or if your meek and mild...  
Always remain civilised and dignified;  
Even if like the mocking bird your wild.  
 
Never become the subject  
Of anyones woeful ways,  
Respect yourself and stand your ground  
Because no bully should darken your days...
