Why would you ever bake

blackbirds in a pie

when plucked right from nature

is still a taste for which to die?

Four and twenty seems too much,

at least for one cat to try.

These humans have it wrong,

would you believe how much they lie?

And then to think these birds

could strut about and fly?

It sounds a recipe for disaster

that takes off to the sky.

The lesson to be learned

is never to trust the guy

who takes all his recipes

straight from a nursery rhyme.
