My Parrot Doesn’t Care to Fly

My parrot doesn’t care to fly.
Although it sounds absurd,
he much prefers to skydive.
He’s a most peculiar bird.

You’ll see him leap from airplanes
in his zip-up nylon suit,
with goggles and a helmet
and, of course, a parachute.

He plummets toward the earth
and nearly breaks the speed of sound,
then pulls the ripcord just in time
before he hits the ground.

He skydives almost every day.
It leaves him feeling super.
And this is why he doesn’t fly:
Yep, he’s a parrotrooper.
