Outlaw Parrots

(on the wing)

by Bob Brault

busted outta that zoo pen aviary
like it was rubber chicken wire
we heard the Spanish Main callin'
(Pollyasnna wanna FIRE!)

gatherin' up the flock
from near and wide;
Layin' down the square-jawed Law

on the turtle waxed side
of all the cars down there

spreading mean green wings,
stinkin' up the air,
divin' down
like shootin' gallery ducks,
goin' who knows where ...

Outlaw parrots on the wing
Don't give a damn about that Human Thing
Just wanna soar
and score some sunflower seeds,
Make strange haunting sounds
and hide out in the weeds.
