The Kiwi

And why oh why Kiwi, you a bird we must call
When you don't have a wing that you can say you own

There's nothing I can do but it was nature's joke
That I be without wings, just run or only walk

My scientific name's Apteryx Australis
A name I owe to Carl von Linne and to the Greeks
'A-' is to mean devoid, having none or without
