Flesh coloured shrimp eater,
wide winged wired bird,
raking the dirt pedalling the earth,
knee knobbled beanpole legs,
knee being ankle joint,
long wavy bright length,
herds of necks pushed right back,
heads out, all in one leg,
vibrancy curved pink spinner,
beak in the ground like a compass,
dot eyed wading follower,
feather liced idoliser,
tall social armpit sleeper,
delightful eyeful not quite parrot,
ancient Roman delicacy,
great poignant egg defender,
living embodiment of Ra,
popular plastic lawn ornament,
iconic worshipped filter-feeder,
underwater insect sucker,
upside down water drainer,
thirty seven miles per hour flapper,
Africa North America
Central America Europe
South America Asia,
lava loving ice bird,
mud mounder by mouthful,
cunningly undesirable,
thirty years of male looking female,
thirty years of female looking male,
many accidental bisexual nights,
lethargy enthused strawberry sunset
pinking the waters forever.
