Wee Wednesday "Weader": A Cockatoo With An Attitude

I have a bird -
a cockatoo.
She's full of spunk
and attitude.

Her name is
Captain Fluffy Pants.
She is naughty
despite our rants.

Her squawks and screams
she punctuates.
Her raucous racket
we tolerate.

Fluffy Pants
can be a tease
when she steals
my keyboard keys.

But her favorite spot
is on MY shoulder,
because I'm the one
that she lets hold her.

Gigantic thank you to this week's "Weaders" Andy and his bird, Captain Fluffy Pants! Boy, does she have an attitude! *squawk*
(And special thanks to Tony for his mad editing skills!)

  2. Bridget,
    This is wonderful. But, now you know why professional actors say, "Never work with kids or animals." They steal the show.
    I love Capt. Fluffy Pants. How does he make the "bing" sound? I want a bird to sit on my keyboard and steal my keys.
    Great poem, great video. THANK YOU
    I'm still smiling and am going to watch this again.

    1. Thanks, Joy! Andy did an amazing job reading my poem and tolerating Captain Fluffy Pants. The Captain was her usual self. =)
