Who

I stepped out on my lawn tonight To catch a breath or two Of cool night air when with a blare An Owl questioned "Who?". "Well, it is I", was my reply "And now, just who are you?" Then in a short he did report Again with that same "Who". "You", I said, "Is who", I said With some authority "Now who are thee, up in that tree?" And "Who" again said he. "Oh! Now I see, when uttered thee From high up in that tree 'Who' was thy introduction And not a question be. So, Who is you and I am me. I'm glad we talked this out. Come again my feathered friend You're welcome here about."

Haha. It's really tricky talking to birds, expecially owls. They're just so monosyllabic.
