It was a sad, sad, day at our house yesterday.
A lone pigeon flew into our slider and killed himself.
It wasn’t a quick and painless death.
The poor thing suffered, and while he did my kids watched him hoping he’d get better.
In the end, the kids thought a birdie funeral was in order.
Words were recited, a coffin made from an oatmeal box, an epitaph was written and erected, and a hole for his remains dug.
Here lies the newly named and passed birdie:
Poor little thing.
Let’s see how long it is before he’s dug back up.
I give it a few days.
Wondering what the epitaph says?Fat Pidge “FP” Born in California Died in California Died of crashed window. R.I.P. Born: unknown Died: 3/16/10
