Perhaps in my backpack I had too much stuff
or maybe my fitness was not up to snuff,
but while I searched in the hot and humid Costa Rican rainforest for that puffbird
My word all I could do was huff and puff
Without getting even a sniff, sound or sight of a white-fronted nunbird.
So try as I might after hours of none of that hunted bird
Dejectedly I finally said enough is enough.
