”Nobody wants to admit that Willie’s a bit off, Fred told Alice
”He keeps a pet ostrich in his small apartment.’
‘ I’ve noticed,’ she replied. ‘Whenever he has company he always sets a place at the table for his ostrich.
There are feathers all over the place but he keeps them so neatly organized
Women he’s courted find his pet so cute.
Each lady, if he thinks she’s special, gets a feather.’
‘I wanted to fix him up with Agnes,’ Fred said, ‘but she has asthma.’
‘One day,’ Alice said, ‘with that ostrich he’ll find someone perfect for him.’
