I just "saved" a bird from my dorm buddy's room. This tiny bird found its way inside her room and was in a state of Jorick-mode when presented with "shoo-away hands". It just didn't give a fuck. They couldn't leave it in there, and the girls seemed reluctant to try and get it out with physical force, so I got a towel and nudged it into my hand, wrapped it up gently and brought it outside.
Not sure if it was injured (hence why it may have stayed grounded inside their room), because it seemed to decline flying off like any sane bird would do after being handled, but when I tested to to see if it could even fly by moving towards it imposingly, it flitted away briefly before landing again. It didn't seem injured, but I don't know why it wasn't flying more. Hope it's okay.
The man who claims to rule and teach
Is only master for the rich
And anyway succumbs
To the laws of nature in the endSlow decay and rest
As we're running fast,
And the mighty ones are nothing
But the last ones.If you give the world a chance
It will beat you down to your knees.
If you try to fight it back
It will beat you again and again.Everything is a weapon if you hold it right.Just a few facts that I thought you should know...
Life increases your chances of dying,
so why are you trying at all?
On a walk in the summer sun you're more likely to be in a homocide,
not to mention the cancer you'll get and the light waves frying your eyes.
As you're breathing this air,
you're increasing your chances of getting diseased,
so retreat in your house with your spouse,
the one person most likely to kill you.
Imagine a leaf as it falls to the ground
whining about an obstruction on the way down,
curling itself to shield from the wind so hopelessly.Life is a lesson
You learn it when it's over
