Sound off on the state of public housing,
whenever you’re ready. Okay,
I’ll get started. There are way too many
parrots and parakeets in these apartment buildings,
and most of them are going to outlive
their owners. Unless there’s a next of kin
or lifelong friend whose heart is big enough
to take care of their deceased loved one’s pet,
these verbose, colorful winged pets
will have to fend for themselves, something
they’d rather not do–or rather can’t do
because they’ve never been in the wild or even
outside the four walls of their modern prison box.
