Never Say Dye

by Simon MacCulloch

“Is it time to ban gender reveal parties? The death of a pigeon recently forced the RSPCA
to warn parents-to-be to stop dying [sic] birds pink”


A leap in human wisdom’s sum!
We’ve learnt that dyeing birds is dumb.
Be bold, and dare to hope as well
That headline writers learn to spell.
