Here's What Came To Mind This Lovely Spring Day...

Poisoning Pigeons in the Park
(Tom Lehrer)

Spring is here, a-suh-puh-ring is here.
Life is skittles and life is beer.
I think the loveliest time of the year
Is the spring. I do, don't you?
'Course you do.
But there's one thing that makes spring complete for me,
And makes every Sunday a treat for me:

All the world seems in tune on a spring afternoon,
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.
Every Sunday you'll see my sweetheart and me,
As we poison the pigeons in the park.

When they see us coming, the birdies all try and hide,
But they still go for peanuts when coated with cyanide.
The sun's shining bright, everything seems all right,
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

We've gained notoriety, and caused much anxiety
In the Audubon Society with our games.
They call it impiety and lack of propriety,
And quite a variety of unpleasant names.
But it's not against any religion
To want to dispose of a pigeon.

So if Sunday you're free, why don't you come with me,
And we'll poison the pigeons in the park.
And maybe we'll do in a squirrel or two,
While we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

We'll murder them all amid laughter and merriment,
Except for the few we take home to experiment.
My pulse will be quickening with each drop of strychnine
We feed to a pigeon. It just takes a smidgin
To poison a pigeon in the park.

You are just a little twisted and I love that about you! The girls get their I.V.'s out today. They also had a great check-up yesterday. Maybe we are on the mend!

Hi Christy,
Yes, I am just a little twisted, but not in a scary way. I blame my husband for introducing me to that pigeons in the park thing (and all Tom Lehrer stuff in general).

Glad to hear things are improving for the girls. I will pray that this time the meds have done the trick and that things will go well for awhile.

Hi Lauren... I commented on the post below.. (I didn't know if you go back and check.) I'm so glad spring is here! so... do you like pigeons? :D
