Incoherent mumblings bubble in my ear,

flamboyant birds flit by.

They live in a utopia

with placards only the birds can see,

waiting to die.

Feathers set at jaunty angles,

an integral part of their lives,.

Timorous thoughts of the wolf beyond,

but never can he come here.

Fractious hummingbirds give diatribe;

ostentatious parrots babble;

the prestigious peacock shows his feathers;

the nominal flamingo stands on one leg.

What ilk is this?

As fortuitous tears fall

without any inhibition,

nor are they expunged even to save face,

what beauty there is to behold in life!

Even during an Indian summer such as this,

never will I wash dirty linen in public,

but I will wear my heart on my sleeve

and tell the birds what I think.

With a schism between two,

never will anathema take place.

You will reap what you sow,

but keep in mind the remunerations

and always remember the birds.
