From the archives: What a bird

well you've got birds & then you've got birds
haven't you? take your wedge-tailed eagle 
for example—what a bird you've got there!
whereas your common blue budgie—well he's

not so much a bird as a parrot is he compared
with your ibis your swan your albatross i mean
your budgie just doesn't cut the mustard does he
that's why you've got to keep him in a cage coz 

he wouldn't last five minutes in the wild what 
with all your other birds doing the rounds i mean 
your currawong your rosella your seagull your
bilby yes mate even your marsupial's more 

bird than your budgie another prime e.g. being
your koala—now he'd instil fear in your bravest
budgie—what a bloody mismatch eh? what a bird
is your koala—a bird's bird if ever i saw one!

what a beautiful bloody bird! what a bird!
