The Spy and the Bird

Written with My 8-year-old Brother #bonding

(I'm working on publishing a poetry collection with a whole bunch of new poems so I haven't uploaded anything on here for a while. In the meantime, my little brother wanted to try and write a poem with me and this is what we came up with LOL.)


A long time ago

A spy was hunting 

To and fro

Until he found a prize.

A mysterious bird 

Flew to him and sang a song

It was nice.


The spy, thought the bird was 


And wanted to become just like it

'Just like you, I want to fly!'

'Okay, you can try', 

The bird replied.


The next day, 

The spy decided to climb 

Onto a roof

and sang 


Just before he was about to try

The bird flew to him 

'If you jump, you will die.'


Later that day, the spy

Went into a mysterious forest 

And wanted to cry

Because he couldn't fly.

As he was walking

He spotted the colorful bird 

Watching a fly

And trying to hunt it.


'Do not eat it,' screamed the spy

'What are you trying to do?'

'I want to become a spy,

I want to become just like you'.

Before either of them could respond

A man in a parachute lands 

On the ground. 

'Be happy with yourselves, 

One day you will understand 

That being you is simply sound.'


He ran away to a nearby plane

The bird and the spy 

Laughed and decided to say

Bye bye

And continued their separate lives

Being happy with who they were, 

And choosing to stay.
