Another Day

My smoke alarm is beeping
it sounds like my Peach Faced Lovebird
I have missed him for a long time
sitting on my shoulder, nibbling  my ear
now he is here again, which is how I
stand the shrill alarm over and over

I would change out the battery, but it is
too high, so I travel back in time to my
lovely, colorful and very smart bird

It is nice having him home again, but
I must find a solution to put batteries
in the smoke detector in case the house
should catch on fire and burn down
meanwhile I love having my lovebird 

back chirping in my lonely house


  1. I can honestly say I have never thought of the smoke alarm as a love-bird. Can't quite put my finger on why.

  2. Oh, there is nothing more annoying than the chirping of a fire alarm!! Mine are high too, but I have someone change them twice a year..... I hope you found a way to deal with them!
