Kookaburra's glee


I could never bear
Old Kookaburra's glee
Always taunting me

Vain bird laughing on
I'd prefer a gentle song
Not his wakeful gong

Unacceptable
Such chatter would wake the dead
I shout from my bed

    Never heard a Kookaburra before! There are bird sounds not quite a sing-song. It's still tolerable though!
