Nursery Rhyme Redo: Birds of a Feather

Pink Flamingo at the Como Zoo
Birds of a feather dressed in leather 
Danced with the pigs in a line 
The rats and mice held their own 
And formed a chorus line

For those of you (like me) not familiar with the original verse, this is the original "birds of a feather".

Birds of a feather flock together
And so will pigs and swine
Rats and mice will have their choice
And so will I have mine


  1. HA! I like your version more better!

  2. Thanks Meleah! It's fun giving a new look to old favorites.

  3. Now I have this image of "Can Can" mice kicking up their legs :-)

  4. Linda,

    I love this one. It made me laugh. I like your version better, too.

    This is such a wonderful series. You should do it more often. It fun to see what you come with.


  5. Nicky- I read a new one to my hubby, and he just looked at me and "you have warped mind". I took it as a compliment.

    Sara- Glad to see you back. I know you had a nice break. I'm glad you like my little ditties. I have about 3 more waiting in the wings. It occurred to me that I should include the original this time since I'd never heard anything past "birds of a feather flock together".


Hi, thanks for visiting my humble abode. All comments are read and appreciated.
