A parrot shares its view with the world! The idea of the poem originated since there is a parrot in our series, Mind Duels. The poem is meant to be light and entertaining.

Who's the Bird Brain?


“Master, master,” I do repeat
"For all my whims, you quickly jump to your feet."
Master states, “Where have you been to behold such a lovely grin?”
"I’ve been perched on a Manzanite wood sleepin’ in."

I (parrot) think:

All you do is toil day after day
You slip into the cold on your way
Hellos and goodbyes you repeat each time you fare through the door
Stop with the idle chit chat, cold drafts are seeping in some more
Traffic delays and chaos everywhere you stray
Meanwhile I’m all comfy, ready to play
You rush, run and are always in a hurry
I look and watch Sylvester who’s all furry
Endless worries fill your mind
While I pick at scrumptious seeds of every kind
Bills and more bills pile up on your table 
While I take pleasure enjoying all the amenities including the TV cable
You hold me in your hands, caress me and play
I roll my eyes and let you have your way
You repeatedly pet my feathers from head to toe
Hey take it easy, I have a reputation—you know!
You taunt me and repeatedly ask, “Polly want a cracker?”
Hey mister give it a break–before I deliver a smacker
I have the life baskin’ in the sun
Meanwhile you’re the dumbbell always on the run
Month after month you coax endlessly, please just let me be     
Now who’s the bird brain, you or me?

Nicely done, Imma. Makes one think. Welcome to AD. Love and best wishes,

A cute, lyrical poem. Reminds me of the parakeet, who said, “Mary had a Little Lamb, Little Lamb, Little Lamb. Mary had a Little Lamb, whose fleece was white as Chris Mas Mas."

While parrots bond with humans quite easily and live a long time in captivity, I still think these magnificent birds belong in their natural setting where they can fly from tree to tree, joining flocks, and eating whatever food nature provides.
