"I love you ... shithole",
so said my African grey.

Writing Prompt
Write a 5-7-5 poem on a loved one (animal)

Sad to say, this is a TRUE story. My African grey, "Doc", used to say that to me and ME alone all the time. She said it in a very sweet loving voice too. I have no idea where she came up with it. It was very endearing actually. She lived to be over forty and I'd give anything to hear her call me a "shithole" again. :))
