Default Let's have a poetry slam!

I don't know why I thought of this, but looking at everyone's budgies inspired me, I guess
SO hear me out:

Everyone write a poem for someone else's budgie!
No, it doesn't have to be good.

If all else fails, write a Haiku--
5 syllables
7 syllables
5 syllables

I'm just really curious to see what you guys come up with!

Here's mine:



Skipper and Scooter, owned by FaeryBee (Deb)

Scooter and Skipper, as you come in a pair
You talk and you squawk and you play with Deb's hair
You are adventurous, and chivalrous but also quite sly--
Who knows on what secret mission you two will spy!

Skipper and Scooter, as you're always together
No wonder the saying is "Birds of a feather"
The ladies all swoon when they see you fly in
Blue and white, white and blue, look at those handsome men!

OMG -- I LOVE THAT!!!

I'll have to think on mine overnight as I'm not at all good with poetry.

Alright, okay, okay. But I'm not as good with words as you are Star, so please be kind...

Gigi studyin'
On her Violin
Was feeling lone
All on her own
Then you were born
Princess Mallorn
And since that day
Hip-hip-hooray
Neve is happy
On Talk Budgie!

(yeah, I know I cheated a little at the end)

Do you notice how I managed to use all your nicknames though?

Yellow and green, with a nice glossy sheen,
Is my feathery coat that I like to preen.

My parents adore me, my brothers deplore me,
But megabacteria simply floors me.

I love my huffs and I sneak pastry puffs,
From WA, my name is Budget

Clouds is my name, cool is my game,
I'm a little bit shady and sometimes vain.

I live like a king, with a golden swing,
And every so often I like to sing.

Thanks Niamh! That is so cool Téo is going to be really chuffed when I show him.

It sounds like you've met Clouds and been in our house.
Hey, now that I know about Noah's talent for stealth, maybe I should start getting paranoid?

And ladies and gentlemen, not one, but two lovely poems from Miss Niamh!
Loved them, nice job
