Poetry Proverb 4

Early Bird
I have no truck with truck
And I must be clear and tell you
She fell off the back of a lorry.
I told her she had a face that 
could launch a thousand ships. 
A frog formed in my throat
and I knew she was forbidden fruit
And she knew it.
Why not give up and get a dog
it's man's best friend.
But doesn't every dog have its day?
Can fine words butter parsnips?
And we laughed and laughed
She laughed last and the longest.
She told me, "Try to put 
your best foot forward,
the early bird will get the worm."
