After adding the ostriches out of Deniliquin to my Australian list some
years ago the following verse occurred to me:


An ostrich peered beneath its shawl

To see if it was there at all

And when convinced it did exist

Became a painful narcissist.

But if it saw it wasn’t there

No living flesh, just misty air

The ostrich would have lost charism

And shunned existentialism
