I was making a cup of coffee the other day
looking out of the kitchen window
waiting for the kettle to boil
When I spotted a Kookaburra that was on a
bit of a lean.
It was running around in circles it was a sight
to be seen.
It was a lopsided Kookabura,that had something
attached to its left wing.
As I got closer I saw that it was a watch,a Seiko
if you please
It also had something on its knee,some sort of
strapping,an injury,maybe a fight
That lopsided Kookaburra was one freaking
I went back inside to finish my drink,and was
washing the cup in the kitchen sink
When I heard some tapping coming from my
The lopsided Kookaburra had somehow made
it up the steps.
The tapping I heard was coming from its beak.
The lopsided Kookaburra didn’t look so good
hungry and kind of weak.
I opened the back door,and Kooka hopped
right on inside.
Then I remembered the neighbours cat that
had a taste for birds.
I hate I cat so much I cant form the words.
I bent down and picked up the lopsided
Kookaburra,and put him on the kitchen
I looked him over,looking for a injury as
much as I was able.
The lopsided Kookaburra was going berserk
flapping its left wing,with its Seiko watch
which I noticed was 20 minutes slow.
I thought how low can a lopsided
I took off the watch and set it to the correct
And the lopsided Kookaburra let out its famous
laugh,that has no rhythm or rhyme.
But instead of returning the watch to its wing
I got a chain and and put the watch around its
The Kookaburra was no longer lopsided,it was
standing there as proud as punch.
And I realised it was time for lunch.
I got some meat from the fridge and gave it
to the bird.
It ate all the meat and looked hungry for more
But I noticed his eye kept going to the back door.
I opened the door and Kooka spread its wings
and took flight
And without a backward glance was soon out
The next morning the tapping was once again
at my door.
The Kookaburra was standing there tapping
out Morse code.
He was saying”I will tell you a story,then ive
got to hit the road”
Kooka told me why he was wearing the watch.
He told me he was always running late,and that
he and a friend were going on a well travelled
You see generations of Kookaburras all around
Australia,always do their laugh at 5.10am and
So Kooka bought a watch so his laugh was no
So now Kooka and his mate are traveling around
handing out watches to all the young Kookaburras
so that they always laugh on time.
But the Kookaburras have to remember not to wear
the watches on their wings,or they will become
So the next time you are going about your business
and at 5.10am or 8.05pm,you hear the Kookaburras
make their noise.
You know that all is fine in the world,girls and boys.
