Our key witness Your Honor, a bird –
Bud the parrot. He saw and he heard
The accused shoot her spouse.
He was there in the house.
Said the dubious judge: “That’s absurd!
While I’m sure that he saw the man die;
Take the word of a bird? Tell me why?
Were he human I would;
Tell me bird, why I should!”
Said the parrot: ”Well, I never lie.”
