The ostrich

Did you know ostriches can’t fly?

Weighing over three hundred pounds,

Wings spanning seven feet wide,

Standing nine feet above the ground,

The ostrich is the largest bird species.

With phenomenal leg power

The ostriches kick can kill,

Also enabling it to run at speeds over forty miles per hour.

Other birds soar above the ostrich,

Amazed of its incredible abilities

Thinking, how nice it would be to possess just a pinch.

But the ostrich stares back wishfully.

The ostrich can do many things

But from the ground, it can only dream.

Because no matter how hard it tries

The ostrich will never fly
