Warning: Diet Coke Can Result In Lousy Poetry

I'm sitting here writing my 55 words
Drinking Coke and imagining picnics with birds
They sing all the songs in their feather-brained heads
And are likely delicious with mustard on bread
Or sauteed with garlic on noodles with carrots
They've gotta taste better than rabid old ferrets
... Does anyone have a good recipe for parrots?

Wow, I like the Rhymie!!!
You pose some very heady questions.
Of course I Loved your 55...:-)

G-Man: Technically, the only question I asked was about parrot recipes. Do you have any?

Marilyn said...

Take two parrots. Defeather, setting aside the red feathers. Dip in Ranch dressing and breadcrumbs and shoot from a cannon. Retrieve. Sprinkle with parsley and season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with red feathers. Serves 150 smurfs.

You might find the world made more sense if you punctuated it properly.

I don't know why but whenever I eat parrot I always want a cracker.

Yvonne Osborne said...

I've heard bad things about diet coke but didn't know it could do this to you! I had to smile, actually laughed!

Alice Audrey said...

LOL. I'm so sorry I have to recipes to help you clear out the parrot population. Will goose do?

Doctor FTSE said...

I like your use of rhyme in this amusing 55.

Janna said...

Marilyn: The secret ingredient is the cannon, isn't it?

The Fifth Horseman: I doubt it.

nonamedufus: What a coincidence. Whenever I eat crackers, I always want a parrot.

Yvonne: Thank you for smiling and laughing!

Alice: No; it has to be parrot. Wouldn't it be neat if there were parrot McNuggets?

DoctorFTSE: Thank you! :)

Honestly... I think pigeon would work quite well. The horse barn has an overabundance of them and they look like they have a bit of meat on them...

Margaret said...

... but pigeon doesn't RHYME!! Hey wait....

They've gotta taste better than dirty water wigeon
....does anyone have a good recipe for pigeon?

wigeon - freshwater duck of Eurasia and N. Africa related to mallards and teals.

What's with all the food tonight? Delicious 55!

Janna said...

Margaret: Oooh, wigeon McNuggets would be even better than pigeon ones.

Teresa: I must be hungry!
