Hiding Like An Ostrich

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Hiding Like an Ostrich

Hiding Like an Ostrich

Hahaa, where I am no one knows

I have hidden away from my head to my toes

I will hide here a while and see how long they will look

No one will know that I am the crook

I stole the crown jewels and I am going to be filthy rich

Because I can hide away like an ostrich

All I need to do is push my head in this dark corner

So as long as I can’t see them, they can’t see me either

This bag filled with gold crowns and necklaces glitter so

But as long as I am hidden, nobody knows

Here they come now, I will fool them plenty

For now I am invisible, and the road seems empty


“Hey you, get out of that dark corner and hand over the bag”

“Are you deaf or are you simply mad?”

“You stole the Jewels now you are under arrest”

“You even took the queens crown with the red crest.”


“You can’t arrest me, I am hidden.”

“I am hiding like an ostrich which makes you seeing me forbidden”

“I will squeeze my eyes a little tighter. There, now go away”

“Because you simply cannot see me, not now or any other day”


“Dispatch, I have a nut job which seems to need psychiatric care”

“He believes by sticking his head in a dark corner makes his body disappear”

Then a swarm of cops comes and tackles the thief to the ground

He has no idea how the damn he was found

Maybe next time he will try to hide like a chameleon

Eric...all she has to do is bribe the boys with cookies and milk.

No Jodah...the thief tipped on himself.

This is an entertaining poem. I laughed as it is so silly. The ostrich never works out for hiding the crime.

Cute little ditty, hiding must be fun?

My wife gets irritated with me. Out in my garden she cannot see me. Hmm my boy knows where to look. Sorry but this was too close to home.

Lots of laughs friend.

This made me laugh, Clive. Someone must have tipped off the authorities.
