1 A Plan For Preserving Birdsong Dennis Lee From: unpublished, Sean Robin & Dylan Valdez

2 This poem is about the author saying lawyers are liars and they are annoying like chattering birds. It is a children’s poem but it has a more of a serious message to it. The poem is just a metaphor comparing lawyers to birds. Is it true that tiny lawyers Hatch in puddles in the spring? I plan to capture orioles And teach them how to sing; But if they can't, the lawyers, Dressed in tiny feathered suits, Could congregate in sheltered spots And play on tiny flutes.

3 These two lines are setting up what the poem is going to be about comparing lawyers to birds. Get all the lawyers together and teach them to speak the truth and not sputter nonsense. If they don’t learn how to speak the truth he will put them in a room until they figure out and fix there problems. Is it true that tiny lawyers Hatch in puddles in the spring? I plan to capture orioles And teach them how to sing; But if they can't, the lawyers, Dressed in tiny feathered suits, Could congregate in sheltered spots And play on tiny flutes.
