Poetic Devices: 

Peter the Parrot

Peter the orange parrot
had a very tiny beak,
unlike the other parrots
he was never heard to speak.
But they were never nasty to him,
Peter the non-talking parrot
they just thought that he was
a very very fluffy carrot.
Then one sunny jungle day
Santa Claus got lost
and Peter with the tiny beak
suddenly was heard to speak
and he directed Santa back to Lapland
to be in the lap of alll the other lovely Lapps,
while the other parrots had been talking
Peter had been reading maps
