TO A PARROT


PARROT TRANSPORTED FROM FAR NATIVE REGIONS,

KEEN ARE YOUR GLANCES, WONDERFULL [sic] YOUR PLUMAGE;

WHY DID YOU LEARN UPON THE JOURNEY HITHER

SO MUCH BAD LANGUAGE?


I WHO DESIGNED THE [thee?] FOR MY MAIDEN AUNTIE

(THINKING TO WIN REWARDINGS TESTAMENTARY)

TREMBLE WITH FEAR THAT SHE WILL FIND YOUR

GREETINGS

   HIGHLY IMPROPER.


WAS THERE NO PARSON ON THE OCEAN LINER?

WERE THERE NO GENTLE LADIES WHO COULD TEACH YOU

WORDS THAT ARE BLAMELESS, INNOCENT, PERSUASIVE -

   WAS THERE NO CENSOR?


THY LOOKS ARE WICKED MUST I TAKE AS ANSWER

THIS SUDDEN BURST OF LOW VITUPERATION,

CLEARLY UNFITTED FOR A MAIDEN LADIES [SIC]

   SENSITIVE HEARING?


BETTER TO SEEK SOME PENITENTIAL REFUGE,

SOME SHELTERED HOME FOR RESCUE OF THE FALLEN

WHERE YOU CAN LEARN SOME BENIGN AND

CHASTENED

   CONVERSE FOR AUNTIE.


N.B. POOR LAW. INST.

NANTWICH.
