Parrots 5th poem

A villanelle I wrote about a parrot
a little fiend all in scarlet and green
who knew every trick in the book
he could keep me oh so amused

He liked to dance to music
yes I swear he did as he bobs
back and forth on his perch
and lifting his nifty nimble feet

He would put Fred Astaire to shame
and that beak could be so wicked
watch it when he nibbles your ear
he will draw blood if given the chance

He would sit in the window and I swear
was people watching and shouting advice
to them as they passed, bowing and dancing
he let them know he was far wiser than they

(Thus my joy for you I will relay
fill my tray you know  the drill
full of colour and so  very gay
keep me happy so I won't stray)
