Paintbox the Parrot by Suzy Davies
Paintbox The Parrot likes to cruise
on a ship with all the crew.
He keeps the passengers all amused
with the things he likes to do.
This bird likes to chat
and spread the news,
wherever he may fly,
and he perches on
the side of the ship
to watch the boats go by.
Paintbox The Parrot likes to squawk,
and makes the people laugh –
when he tells jokes to everyone,
he’s the best comedian, by half!
This bird repeats all the tales
he’s heard from people he knows,
so everyone is careful
to keep their secrets close!
