i might have (wings, hands)

someone once said that a bird in hand is worth two in the bush, but i really believe that depends on what kind of bird it is, and what you might conceivably do with that bird, whether you're planning on eating it or caging it or just letting it go, or what it might be planning to do to you, if you don't kill it first, if you were going to kill it all, or if you were just trying to set it free from a snag, in which case two in the bush could be better, for you and for it and for them, because they might just be sitting there, singing, waiting for their companion, but then again you never really can tell about birds, you know, they may just fly off and drop some shit on your shoulder and then what are you going to do with that bird you're holding?

someone else once said, keep a green tree in your heart, and perhaps a singing bird will come...
