Hush, Hush Not So Sweet Charlatan

Believe me, there’s so many top-top-top secrets I does knows,

Especially those about friends and foes,

Including my favorite philosophers-Larry, Curly, and Moe.

Yet, I suppose by now you realize your emperor has no clothes,

and even though you knows where I want your nose,

Perhaps for national security sake it’s best if anything confidential to me you don’t disclose.

So this sad-sad-sad saga goes and goes….




The Clay-Colored Thrush

While plentiful it certainly is not beautiful.

No quetzal it’s colors are decidedly not resplendent.

No hummingbird it’s far from magnificent.

That ex-robin annoyingly sings and sings and sings never going hush.

To name that thrush Costa Rica’s  national bird they must have really been in a rush.
