It was a political day
The bird seemed to be silent in the beginning
Then started its interrogation
‘What wing you are?’
Astonished tree set back for a while
and then returned a ‘What?’

‘Come on! I am asking whether you are right-wing or left-wing?’
reinstated the bird.

Tree had a long breathe before it could utter a word
‘I was till date thinking that this wing-business is only for you birds.
By the way tell me if there is any middle-wing?’

With a little surprise this time
replied the bird, ‘But you can’t fly with a middle-wing’

The relieved tree thus ended the conversation,
‘Why should I fly at all, after all I am a tree?’
