The Birds that Give the Bird

by Brian Allgar

A British wildlife sanctuary has been forced to separate five parrots
who wouldn’t stop swearing at visitors.

“Fuck off, you prick!” the parrot screeched,
And launched a vicious sally,
His mates repeating all his oaths:
“Fat twat! You’ve gone doolally!”
Someone should take these foul-mouthed birds
To Donald Trump’s next rally.
