This is a quetzal
I think it’s quite special
With colors so spectacular
There is no apt vernacular
So would you ask a quetzal
“Polly, do you want a pretzel?”
Or would you offer this cool avian
Something healthy vegetarian?
In it’s native Guatemala
Perhaps you’d start to holler
“No food for you as you well know
If no shoes, no shirt, no dinero”
At 3:15, one can’t expect a post far more germane
More witty, cogent, thoughtful not to mention more urbane
Perhaps it’s best I bid the quetzal ‘adios’ for now
And leave you with a sleepy smile, returning to my bough.
