the pretty parrot in its pretty cage,
sits all day with nowhere to go
the pretty parrot in its pretty cage,
only speaks when it is spoken to
so still, so quiet, it almost looks dead,
indiscernible from the stuffed
dead birds nailed proudly to the wall
the pretty parrot in its pretty cage —
a living decoration at its finest
