O is for Ostrich

My grandmother says that when she was a small girl in Africa,

She rode on an ostrich once.

She said they are very silly birds;

with nothing in their heads except feathers.


An ostrich is the only bird which can run very fast in several directions at once,

For no reason whatsoever.

Which is very confusing when you are sitting on their back

With your feet stuck under their armpits, hanging onto their wings for dear life.


I have absolutely no idea why she wanted to ride one in the first place.

But that’s grandmothers for you.
