Why am I sinking?
Because you are a bird
I am drowning
having trouble breathing?
Something is wrong in this sea. Thank goodness you didn’t say a word on the subject.
I am afraid to go any nearer the shore, for if the sons of men see me they will kill me.
Polly wants a cake
This is a unique situation, I think its time we warn someone about this. We don’t want parrots floating around here.
Thank you Mr. Diver I will report this to the queen of the sea so she will know what to do. Parrots do not belong sinking into the sea.
Calm down my dear, We will seek guidance from the nine fish. They will tell us how to behave in a situation such as this
My beloved Queen , There is a unwarranted sinking parrot in sector 359-xX-128556-00. Do you have any ways to counter this attack from above?. WHAT SHOULD WE DO!?
I, The octopus say that we wait with alerting the nine fishes until we know more of the parrot at hand. I shall use the dead skeleton to look into his past. Then we will be sure.
This is the house where the parrot was born answering the call of the dead skeleton. What would you like to know?
I, the worm who lives in his former nest in the rain gutter of the house can tell you that his years in the egg where troublesome. He wanted to get out before he was ready.
Out of the past the foetus answered, that was what happened, I came out to early. My parents did not like that.
I am the father of this child. He was early to rise but now I see he has sunken deep. This is sad to me. I have no further useful information on this.
I do have more information. You cheated on your wife and stole my egg and let your wife hatch his egg. You have no shame, old man.
That is why I made his egg hatch faster, I wanted to get rid of the little retard as soon as possible.
That is when I took him in. The poor little thing. I made him dance and sing. He was good and made me a lovely amount of money so I could buy this nice puppet-show. Then he left me because he wanted to see the world with that drooling idiot girl. Stupid bird.
Archibald was fun, he didn’t like wearing clothes, but he could get away with it because he was a bird. After the robbery he left me dying on the muddy road where I perished from multiple stab wounds. That wasn’t fun.
Before he met us I had a nice family of garden gnomes, when he left we were all in pieces. I got glued back together but developed ornithophobia. It was a dark time to see him mimicking a statue in the garden. This lasted for years. Then we rebelled.
He was a great man and a fellow traveller for many years. He treated me like an equal instead of a guy with a rabbit and a train for a gut with ovenmits on. That’s remarkable for a parrot.
His Betrayal was all the more harsh because I was not expecting to be tricked by a bird.
He used to say that we get so old, if we don’t die sooner we will simply get old. That was his justification for doing anything.
He gave me this human, which was reckless because I love to eat humans
I am the dancing ice cream, I am the dancing Iiiiiiiiiicecreeeeeeeeam!!, I want more drama in my live and he gave it to me. that’s what he did. he gave it.. something…important to me. The frolicking ice cream…. (To dramatic?, well lick me up and down and call me melty…..)
Now that I have appeared here in the depths of the parrot, it is certain that the parrot has gone mad due to lack of oxygen to his brain. I am like an artificial womb tea table bucktoothed carnival octopus.
I met Archibald when I bought my first ship and I needed a parrot to become a proper pirate. It is irritating that the governing bodies still insist on this practice. His rates where reasonable. He was a good parrot as far as I am concerned
I am still sinking, but I am not dead yet. A thought has occurred to me and it wants to live. It’s a greedy thought. its taking my live. You can see it know. Just come closer.
To be continued…
