Myna Bird Alien Import
A myna bird ran along the bamboo restaurant railing
Head up, chest out, tail feathers down
It lifted its’ legs and feet with the gait of a harness pony
And charged towards the finish line
The sweepstake prize
A woven basket with the lecturer’s
In Papeete, Tahiti.
Peter Crawford, of the BBC “Nomads of The Wind”
Waves the winner off in protest.
It’s an alien import to Polynesia.
