The nightingale soared peacefully and free While the mighty bear sauntered patiently. Wisdom kept the bruin from aggression The nightingale, high above oppression. Then one day, abandoning its reason The bear initiated songbird season. How embarrassing it made the effort To pluck the sky of the singing feathered. The ursine losing all its common sense Should apologize and return to whence. Then if the natural order is reset If love and beauties preconditions met The bear and nightingale again may gather And share a song of futures that are better.
