The Angry Bluebird

Good Morning Love… Drinking from a cup you gave me. An angry bluebird stares back. I think he’s pissed about the coffee Because I drink and he doth lack. A funny little fellow is he. All poofed up like Donald Duck. I can’t but help to slap my knee, and laugh at his poor luck.

God is My Refuge
