Scarecrows short, scarecrows tall,
Scarecrows big, scarecrows small,
Scarecrows fat, scarecrows thin,
They all look great for the shape they’re in.
But their name’s misleading
I’ll have you know,
I’ve never known one
To scare off a crow.
In fact, the birds all seem to admire
These weird looking folks
In their autumn attire.
They pause in their flying
And land without harm
To rest for a moment
On scarecrow’s long arm
And admire the rag-mop
That serves as his hair,
Topped off by a straw hat
In need of repair.
So there’s one thing for certain
You all should know:
This guy should be known as
‘Can’t Scare A Crow’.
