#WDYS — A Bird in the Hand

A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
A small bird in the hand would be easy to crush
Not that I would ever do such a thing
I want to hear that little bird sing

But wait little bird, what have you done?
Did you just drop a tiny turd in my palm?
You need to hop from my hand and fly away
I can’t be responsible for you if you stay

    You are the center of your own private little constellation
    And you are the jury and judge of every little deconstructed fable
    And you like the way it is
    You don’t want to question it
    You’re the wonder of God’s own handiwork

    Yeah, you wear Versace but you look like a dirty bird
    And yeah, even the paparazzi think you’re quite absurd

    Venus of your own consent, is there anything you give up for Lent
    Oh parasite, oh peacock of pride, will you let the little people see inside you
    And you don’t wanna question it
    And you’re looking quite possessed
    You’re the wonder of God’s own handiwork Yeah, you wear Versace but you look like a dirty bird
    And yeah, even the buying public think you’re quite a jerk

    And you’re trapped in your little castle
    Like Randolph Hearst in his fringe and tassel

    Yeah, you wear Versace but you look like a dirty bird
    And yeah, even the paparazzi think you’re quite absurd

        Yes, it’s pretty obscure.
