Bird In A Cage
“Sushi, where are you?” Macaroni wondered. “I’ve been on this fence long enough!”
“Oh! There you are. Where have you been? I’ve been worried about you.”
“I flew into a sudden rain storm a few miles from here. It was awful!” Sushi explained.
“You look terrible! Did you crash into something?”
“No, I’m just drenched.”
“I saw a parakeet laying on a bush and it was barely breathing,” Sushi said.
“Yes, you know, one of those birds that live in a cage in a human’s house.”
“Oh! Yes, I’ve heard about that kind. I wonder how it got out of the cage.”
“The cage was hanging on the porch and when it rained, the wind blew, it fell off the hanger and crashed against the porch rail, then landed on a bush.”
“The human rushed out to rescue the poor bird, but it was too late. The bird got hurt when the cage fell and dumped him out on top of the bush.”
“Well, at least it wasn’t concrete!” Macaroni said.
“No, but the bush had a lot of stickers on it!”
“Ouch! That hurts just thinking about it!”
