Mimus

Early morning mockingbird sings
line by line a car alarm’s tune:

twa-twa-twa-twa
twa-twa-twa-twa
whaaaha whaaaha
woooew woooew
woooew woooew
ta-ta-ta-ta
ta-ta-ta-ta
twooew twooew twooew
tweee-tweee-tweee-tweee
tweee-tweee-tweee-tweee!

It is the most idiotic song I have ever heard,
 
the bird singing back the sound
of our own awful invention.
