Cottleston Pie Definition:

It stands for Inner Nature.

The song from Winne the Pooh is explained in the book "The Tao of Pooh"

“A fly can’t bird, a bird can fly.” Very simple. Very obvious. And yet, you’d be surprised how many people violate this simple principle every day of their lives. It means that we're all different individuals even though created equal.

“A fish can’t whistle and neither can I.” Coming from a wise mind, such a statement might mean, “I have certain limitations, and I know what they are.” Unfortunately, some people-who always seem to think they're smarter than fish and birds, somehow-aren't so wise, and end up causing big trouble for themselves and others.

"Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston Pie
Why does a chicken, I don't know why.
Ask me a riddle and I reply:
Cottleston, Cottleston, Cottleston Pie"

All we have to do is recognize Inner Nature and work with things as they are- after all "You can't get very far if you don't know who you are"
Ask me a riddle and I reply:
Inner Nature

-Cottleston Pie sounds better, said Pooh.
Ask me a riddle and I reply:
"Things are as they are"
"Better...But it still doesn't rhyme" said Pooh.
Cottletone, Cottlestone, Cottlestone Pie.
