Sick Old Bird: COLLABORATION

There once was a cranky old parrot who had all the charms of a ferret. She went to great ends to get rid of friends and now lives in a draft-y garret. The draft made her sicker and sicker which caused her to bicker and bicker. She tried writing verse which made matters worse so that she would bicker much quicker! She couldn't stop coughing and wheezing. Her vanity there was no pleasing. The truth of her curse was no gift for verse which she blamed on all of the breezing. This made her get tougher and tougher. Her verses got rougher and rougher. She wouldn't stop writing, but kept on delighting in making the whole country suffer. BY DALE GREGORY COZART The parrot soon dropped off her high perch From the top of an old silver birch Now she’s no longer squawking And her husband is walking To see the old bird buried in church!
