Two Talking Parrots Poem by Sheeya Hacks

Two Talking Parrots

Rating: 5.0

Two talking parrots sat on a tree,
talking and laughing as happy as can be,
one said to the other, 'let's have some fun,
and mimic the humans, just for fun! '

So they started chatting, with accents so refined,
making jokes and puns, and being quite kind,
people stopped and stared, they could not believe,
two parrots talking like us, it was hard to conceive.

The parrots laughed and squawked, playing it up,
so many were amused, their antics unstoppable,
but then something happened, and it wasn't so funny,
the parrots couldn't stop, they went on a ranting spree.

They mimicked politicians and spouted fake news,
a crocked politician could not bear it all,
he ordered policemen to put them into a cage
and in isolation, let take out their frustration and rage.

Now the parrots have learned a lesson, that talent's a gift,
But using it wisely, is the only way that will give you a lift.

There is a satire but I am not sure how many of you will get to it. Considering the typical level of skill at PH, I am hesitant to take the chance.

Wow, I got it, Aren't you talking about Originals and Copy Cats? Impressive, I understand. Are you referring to the distinction between Authentic and Imitation? The comparison you made with Parrots is a brilliant illustration of the current state of affairs in our society.

I liked the last part where the two are inside the cage, lost their freedom just because they could not keep their mouth shut.
