   Nothing is what it seems

Run and hide, run and hide there are birds in the sky.
Quick, duck as they near
They are pooping like a steer,
You'll be nothing but a smear.

Oh dear or dear, cried the other little ant
and I always thought I'd get pecked in the end,
Not a watery grave.

Quick, quick into the hole,
Like a mole
Wait, wait.
until then . . .

Then?  Replyed the other little ant.
Then for what?
The end?

No, no
It'll be dinner
When it dries.

This is NUTS!  GOTTA LOVE IT!  Made me choke
on me beer, m'dear...

Especially:
"and I always thought I'd get pecked in the end..."

Gotta admit, I've shared that philosophy...
