Day 17 NaPoWriMo – The Parrot and the Peppercorns

Published April 17, 2013 by Laura Crean Author

OK so this one is probably for the kids…

 

My daughter Alice at the jungle display at Paradise Park Newhaven.

There’s a mumble in the jungle

there’s a twitter in the trees

there’s a roaring on the river

carried by the rapids and the breeze.

The elephants are laughing

at the chatter of the chimps

‘cos the parrot stole some peppercorns

and he’s been sneezing ever since.

Now the mumble is a rumble

and the twittering’s intense

the crocodiles are cackling

at the parrot on the fence

as his sneezing and his wheezing

are driving him insane

but the dance it makes is pleasing

and they think it quite a game.

Now all the jungle’s dancing

and eating peppercorns

but the parrot has stopped sneezing

and is now eating only worms!
