Green Parrots

Green Parrots.

It started off with one green parrot
Who’d come down for a feed
From the trays I’d started leaving them
All heaped with healthy seed.
The next day there were two of them
And the flock it grew from there
And now, it seems, those lovely birds
They just be everywhere.

Their filled with lovely colours
And there vocals be a treat
Their voices have so many tones
From screech, to song so sweet.
But Lord these guys do fight a bit
And some that come for seed
They often end up fleeing
Before they’ve filled their needs

I try to coax some other breeds
Of birds to add some colour
They can’t get past these twenty Eights
They’ll get chased off for sure
Each time they see some other bird
They’ll kick up quite a scene
And yet these pretty coloured birds
Make my day seem so serene.

    These birds are like people you love to be around all kinds and types because every person is so differnet from one another, but there are some that stand out from the mob, i love to be around people thats why i choose my profession but i enjoy the elder the most because they need help the most, and they've seen so much and one learn from them. i love this poem it can be looked at by many ways. thank you for sharit it with us. cheri

    Thank you Cheri, when I wrote about these birds I had not that in mind, but I always do see people in these parrots, So argumentative and always making a noise. My wife, Vera used to look after the elderly before she retired, and she loved those people. Once again, I appreciate your comments, my friend....peter
