The Parrot’s Lament (Go Away Sunshine)

Go away sunshine.
I ain’t in the mood.
Leave me alone.
Just let me brood.

Go away sunshine
Like my Polly’s gone.
She had many good sides,
But whose side was she on?

Go away sunshine.
I know she’s a snacker,
But who could predict
How she wanted that cracker?

Go away sunshine.
Let me sit in this cage,
And share with passerby
My avian rage.
