You Call This A Song Bird (limerick)

Updated on November 13, 2013

I bought my dear wife a song bird

But soon all my anger was stirred

To store we did go

The salesman to show

That bird didn’t know single word

      If it is advertised as a songbird, it needs to sing!

      I know why, dear Martin,

      And the answer I will share.

      The poor bird does not know a word,

      Because his teleprompter's not there!

      Mhatter, this was an opportunity to teach the bird what you wanted it to say. You missed it! Ha Ha.
