Birds with Wings on the Front

I like to watch birds
But I watch different kinds of birds
Those who have wings
Which remain folded and rest on the front
Like rounded conical inverted cups
Like very small puffed umbrella tops
I don’t know what these birds do with them
But I for one can fly on them
Just by the act of looking at them
Or may be even without that
As in just by the memory of them

There is much more to these birds
Than their folded inverted cup like wings
But let’s not go astray and dilute the topic
Like someone else, as was shown In his biopic
With regard to this, I am a real connoisseur
You might make the same claim, monsieur
But I insist that I am one of the best
Alas, unfortunately, I fail one big test
These birds don’t seem to like me much

What a pity!
What a shame!
Because for me
These birds are
Not just fair game
