This emu can ‘run the pants of a kangaroo’.

I would like to thank Rosemary Scott for
allowing me to use her photo for inspiration. She was also kind enough to email the original to me, which made a huge difference. Thanks so much for sharing Rosemary!
Now for some singing…
Let me tell you of an interview with an Old Man Emu
He’s got a beak and feathers and things, but the poor old fella ain’t got no wings
“Aren’t you jealous of the wedge-tail eagle?” – dom ba da little da da da
_"While the eagle’s flying round and round, I keep my two feet firmly on the ground
I can’t fly, but I’m telling you, I can run the pants off a kangaroo" _
