Nice creative approach! Sounds like the parakeet's from the deep south.
Wonderful imagination and such a fun read. If I had read anymore, think me's b talkn like dat!!
Actually, I think someone's been reading too many stories with New York accents. ;)
A fun, creative piece. It was a while before I realized the narrator was a bird, but the message is loud and clear!

Aw.... as an animal lover, I "loved" this exchange between a parakeet and his writer. :) This warmed my heart!
This was very heartwarming. Thank you for a truly delightful story. This parrot truly had a lot to say. I enjoyed the interaction between the Warden and the parrot.
Congrats! Loved your piece!
