Poem: Parrot Shit Media


As a secular hermit

I abstain from the media:
My mind is a temple

That does not like

To be poisoned

By propaganda

My use of newspapers

Is completely disposal:

It keeps my parrot’s shit

From carpeting the floor

Between bird droppings

I occasionally make out headlines

About politics and paedophiles

Staged lootings and medical malpractice

After engorging myself

On two or three

I always conclude:

Parrot shit makes a better read.
