Ode to the Savior's of the Pelican


I was flopping around in the surf one day
Severely tangled, waves almost swept me away.
My wings were in bondage from a fishermen's line,
I'll be forever grateful that you all took the time.

Three great friends stopped when they saw my strife,
It was a darn great thing one of you carries a knife.
You cut me loose and cared for me,
Now I'll continue to live happily.

This is me flying free in the sky up above,
I'll remember you three with fondness and love.



Dedicated to Stephen R. Burr, Kelly Cox, and Chris Lewis
