The Talking Bird

What does a baby make up for the fun -
with the foolishness of bird and man?

A raucous gang of teenagers came by
and made the bird squawk and fly;

Glamorous ladies in their older years;
their greetings turned into cheers;

A debonair paused and expected
a praise, the opposite he got instead;

A man in full suit said, "Hello there!"
repeated the bird with blank stare;

Boys are boys, they made some clown;
good words, bad words flew around; 

Friend to all - waiters, guests as well,
In random words and phrases swell.

All but imitation of whatever call,
in make believe to fill the empty hall.

In decibels unkind to any ear
yet everyone just wishes to hear.

What does a baby make up for the fun -
with the foolishness of bird and man? ~
