Mascot History: The bird was employed proverbially and figuratively in reference to nocturnal habits, ugliness, and appearance of gravity and wisdom (often ironic).

"A Friend"

A friend is like a flower in mid-spring

A star on top of the evergreen tree

A friend is a person that is trusting

And lets you go on a rambling spree


Friends won't let you do silly stuff alone

A friend forgives unnecessary fights

A true friend will be the first to atone

A friends is special like the northern lights


A friend is one in a million

A friend is always a loyal person

A friend can be one in a billion

If you make them mad, your friendship worsens


I know I have a couple of true friends

and if we fight I will truly make amends.
