My Parrot (Tats)

Updated on June 19, 2013



My friend

As the melodies play on my radio

and my favourite bird displays her dance

nodding her head up and down

always smiling

never a frown

a whistle

a song

a word

or two


'when your smiling'

all the way through

imitating my voice when I am on the phone

says ''hello''

when I come home

asking me questions

when I'm watching the box

biting my toes

when I've no socks

saying ''yum'' ''yums''

when I'm preparing food

If I ignore her

she's extremely rude

everybodies friend

and soul mate

especially when

given food off your plate

a cardboard box

she shreds

in seconds

then looking


to me she beckons

'come and speak

for a few seconds'

as night time falls

and I go for a short walk


the window

I hear her shout

''where you going'

are you going out?'

''when are you back'

'''don't be long''

and then breaks into a lovely song

When I get home

she says


now go to bed you funny fellow?''
