A Funny Parrot Poem for Kids
From the book The Tighty-Whitey Spider
Cara’s parrot’s rather rare.
He’s such a quiet bird.
While other parrots talk a lot,
he never says a word.
It’s not because he can’t;
it’s that he hasn’t much to say.
Instead he’s into bodybuilding,
lifting weights all day.
Although it sounds a little strange
and looks a bit bizarre,
he’ll practice push-ups in his cage
and chin-ups on his bar.
He’s gotten rather muscular
from lifting all day long.
It’s safe to say you’ve never seen
a parrot quite so strong.
For Cara bought a parrot
of a somewhat different stripe.
It seems that Cara’s parrot
is the strong and silent type.
