Red & Green Parrot
I’m a red and green parrot
and would love to eat a carrot.
But I looked around and one could be found.
Sometimes you’ll see me in someone’s home
but I’d rather be out where I can roam.
I normally eat lots of fruit and seeds
they fill up all my hungry needs.
I have neat clawed fee to hold all I can eat
and feathers of red that cover my head.
I can screech real loud ’cause I feel very proud
I’m a tropical bird that can really be heard.
