Comic Parrot


Sharp tough beak amid a collar of blue

Eye of golden eyeing you

Listening carefully to mimick you

Watch what you say or your words will come true

Amazon beauty in the high swaying trees

Viewing carefully all it sees

They are after its feathers with a poisioned dart

Aiming through blue feathers at the Macaw's heart

But tame it can be in a caring house

Silent usually as quiet as a mouse

But then the parrot begins to chatter

Regudgitating all of your daily natter!

"They are after its feathers with a poisioned dart / Aiming through blue feathers at the Macaw's heart"

Wonderfully contrasted sound effects here, with the soft words and the harsh words echoing the sense of the line.

I enjoyed the poem, and found the last line hilarious. Nicely done.

Awwww, how sweet and what a beauty! They are such a wonderful comfort, but indeed be careful what you say...

Be always safe,
Karen
