Bird Talk

Pushy pedantic parrots
discuss philosophy
global warming, extinction
give wordy, high flown speeches
while I, a self-restrained canary
become lost
in their avian rhetoric

I want to screech
above a tweet
show them more
than a bird's brain
instead I chirp
flutter wings
fly swiftly over their heads
for their open mouths
