leanna bird.jpeg    Jerzy Kosinski, a Polish Jew, wrote a morose story where one of the characters captured a crow, painted its feathers in bright colours, then let it go. When it joined its flock, the other birds didn’t recognise him as one of their own and attacked him with their beaks. Eventually, the painted bird died.

Homo sapiens come in different shapes and colours. Of all the animals on Earth, they pretend to be the more intelligent. But if you ask me, they’re no better than dull crows.
