a bird outside is yakking the night away again- just outside my window
i have never heard such non-stop joyfulness in about six different songs
from any feathered creature…that lasted this long. over an hour. ugh.
i just opened the door…and i kid you not, the bird stopped a minute
then three critters made various noises…and then, as the door shut…
started up again, his or her non-stop barrage like a run on sentence
driving me to chewy bread and kerrygold butter at 12:18 in the morning. Ugh.
Oh, you think you are so clever Lord Mockingbird (your chickadee is just a bit too slow). But you won’t be singing happy songs when people start having serious problems….
“Did not come in to work today because…..incessant irritating bird songs ruined his sleep.”
“I am suing the said bird for pain and suffering, including but not limited to psychological damage, pyschosocial malajustment, and loss of wages.”
“Due to the constant harrassment of my neighbors, I am moving out of my apartment, effective ten minutes ago. It all started a few nights ago when a neighbor began an unrelenting stream of mocking bird sounds…”
of course, if the love of my heart came into my world, i might be just as irritating. it has to be bird love. how else can we explain it?
maybe if my world was more happy, if a certain person had chosen differently in life, or if i wasn’t laying in bed with kidney stones for a week, i might feel better about it. maybe.
PS it is now 2:05 am and the bird is still chirping non-stop. unreal.
