In the home of J.P. Truet
Lived two mynahs - Grace and Huet -
Big and black and caged up always,
Locked up in the marble hallways;
Perching near an oil by Tanner,
Keeping watch of Truet Manor,
Letting nothing slip away,
They both stayed there night and day.
One dark night with lightning flashes
They heard broken window smashes.
As a burglar climbed with bag in,
They knew how to fix his wagon;
Calling out with caws and wheezes,
“Be prepared to mee-eet Jesus!”
Not fazed by these faith-filled words,
He shot back, “You silly birds.”
On he bagged both wares and china
Heeding not the words of mynah
Echoing from hallway ceiling,
“Soon you’ll have a sinking feeling!”
Then as thief swung door to kitchen,
He froze right then, scared and twitchin’
Seeing Mastiff’s teeth of pain,
And with “JESUS” stamped on chain.
