Blue Birds and Eagles

A new neighbor moved in next door seems nice enough-a bit eccentric plays his music with vigor and verve but I don't mind because I fancy noisy birds- He said,once upon a time he'd a billion friends who'd give him rides to Starbucks in electric vehicles... but they turned sour after he'd purchased a one song bluebird,,, plucked stones from its throat-freed it from its cage. They didn't fancy that the bird had more diversity of song and that it looked more like an eagle now and refuses to be bought- He said the good news was that he'd made 2 billion new friends, and that some even give him a lift in their gun racked gas powered pick up trucks... how ironic is that.
