Cuckoo Chick Little

by newrana


A cuckoo chick little, cute very little

awoke from a dream, but not very peaceful.

He shivered in fear recalling the warning

by mother crow kind about his shrill cuckooing.

She promised him that the training of his voice

would make him caw, and he would feel rejoice.

Fear of torture made him try a silly attempt

not knowing that it would make him just repent.

A herald’s call of caw for a sudden attack

kept war heroes ready without any setback.

This tempted cuckoo chick, to try a sudden flight;

the rest I can’t say because it’s a sorry sight.
