The Laughwing

The laughwing’s a bird so funny and smelly
It makes you giggle and splutter.
It’s got a big belly and loves eating jelly
And lands with a flop and a flutter.

But one thing I’ve heard that’s amusing –
The laughwing also loves butter.
You’ll laugh at it choosing and expertly using
It’s beak as a spreader and cutter.

But why is the laughwing so rank and so smelly?
The answer I hardly dare utter.
The answer’s its belly, full of mouldering jelly,
It pongs like an odorous gutter.
