Theme Thursday - Pink

Pink Flamingos

Do you think
All-grown-up flamingos
Ever wish
Their beaks would shrink?

Do you think
Tall standing flamingos
Worry 'bout
Their necks that kink?

Do you think
The fact that flamingo's
knees are ankles
Makes their life stink?

Do you think
Baby boy flamingos
Mind being
Dressed all in pink?

Please enjoy other takes on the theme "pink" at Theme Thursday.

I ADORE flamingos. Where did you find these lovelies?

Diane AZ said...

Lovely image! I like how the flamingo in front made a figure 8. :)

I love flamingos too. I always wondered what it was that made them so smelly, though. Who knew it was the knees/ankles thing. ;-)

My post for Pink, close to my heart, is up here.

What a great poem. Uh, I don't like flamingos at all (just kidding. I actually love flamingos)!

Beautiful picture and poem. Thank you :)

Sweet . . .did you know they're pink because of their diet? I wonder how we keep them pink in captivity. Yes I think about these things.
