Squawk vs Gobble


A man had a parrot that talked so bad
A worst vocabulary no one had

The man attempted to make correction
The parrot threw epithets in every direction

Finally exasperated in a fit of rage
The man pulled the parrot out of his cage

Threw him in the freezer to cool him off
All the while, the parrot just squawked

Then suddenly it got deathly quiet
The man felt things weren't exactly right

He opened the freezer and to his surprise
The parrot began to apologize

For being so vulgar and so obscene
He promised from now on to be serene

He said to the man, I have a question for you
What did that turkey in the freezer do?
