A wonderful bird is the Pelican.
His beak can hold more than his belly can.
He can hold in his beak
Enough food for a week!
But I'll be darned if I know how the hellican?

I used to take care of an elderly lady who told me this poem years ago. I always wondered where she had heard it.

It's like having a wallet with more money in it than you are able to spend. I would call that, "Pelican Time".
