THE PAINFUL DOWN UNDER DUET

                          DULCET DOWN UNDER DISHARMONY
                                  (THE PAINFUL DUET)


                    Down Under it is summer skies
                    And brilliance is the smell with flowers
                    Birds flit about with eager eyes
                    From early dawn 'til blackest hours

                    Sometimes the combinations vary
                    Of birds that fly in flocks or pairs
                    Outside my window voices carry
                    Birds landed by the backyard stairs

                    A duck and parrot squawk in glee
                    Both voices sing without a care
                    The worst birdsong in memory--
                    Finches and canaries glare.

                     Such pain of eardrums does imply
                     Given a chance in stormy weather 
                     Songbirds escape --at least they try--
                     Tone-deaf birds when flocked together
