English Budgie vs. American Parakeet By PuppiesAreProzac




I keep small birds for pets

I love every one of them

Even when I’ve stopped talking

It seems that their conversation never ends


They take the food I offer

Eating every last seed

Sometimes their mates outside the window

Are still talking tweet tweet


An on-going war

You could probably say

Rages in my house for territory

Both night and day


But I love the little critters

each and every one of them

Throughout their mindless gabble

They see me as friend.
