Poem


To amuse emus on warm summer nights
Kiwis do wiwis from spectacular heights.

  1. Here's what Ogden Nash said about your lovely emu's cousin the ostrich:

    The ostrich roams the great Sahara
    Its mouth is wide, its neck is narra.
    It has such long and lofty legs,
    I'm glad it sits to lay its eggs.
