POEM: "Thirty-Three And A Bird"

Thirty-Three And A Bird

I'd be amazed too if other animals couldn't do it

Why only yesterday in Oz
the chestnut-crowned babbler bird
came clean something never before
seen in animals first sign

Outside of the human
an animal can use they
use meaningless sounds
in a different way

3 months ago Rabbit Angstrom ran out to buy his wife cigarettes. 
He hasn't come home yet.

Another monkey poem
that is not a game of chess

Thunder thirty-three and a bird

Even the smoke is attracted to him

It follows after he leaves the fire

Why do I bother?
