Longjohn was working on a ship
as an amateur magician.
The captain's parrot watched the show
and learned the tricks by repetition.

The parrot often yelled out clues
in the middle of the show.
And though it was the captain's bird
it pissed John off. You know?

Well as LongJohn’s luck would have it
another shipwreck had occurred.
And wouldn’t you all know it
the only other survivor was the bird.

They stared each other down with hate
this went on for several days.
The silence between the two of them
as they floated on the waves.

Finally the bird spoke up,
this the question from his lip…
"All right already, I give up,
what did you do with the damn ship!"
