Granny's Parrot

My granny’s parrot, Charlie,

     Often calls out naughty words.

Did Granny teach him what to say?

     Oh no!! That’s quite absurd!


Now if I called out such dreadful words,

     Then Gran would tell me flat

That children who are well brought up

     Would not say things like that.


Has Granny also learned these words?

     She has.  It must be true.

Not only does she know these words

     But Charlie’s learnt them too.


Gran thinks about these wicked words

     That never should be said,

And, whilst telling me what I must say,

     Teaches Charlie them instead.


So next time that she ever says

     I’m rude and quite uncouth,

It’s then that I will question her

     And ferret out the truth.
