Bar-winged Godwit and Flight 370: Did they pass each other in that vast stretch of the southern Indian Ocean where planes and ships have been searching for three days? (a sad 420 character, 9-line poem by Patty)
Bar-tailed Godwits, are shorebirds who fly 7,000+ miles non-stop,
New Zealand to the Arctic,
sustained exercise unrivaled by any other vertebrate
& a highly-evolved solution to the dangers of a hopscotch route:
no predators or exposure to parasites and disease.
Did those 8 keystrokes into Flig computer
to aim it over vast oceans
hope to avoid some dangers too?
Was the last being to see it a Bar-tailed Godwit?
