    Outside, this morning, before the clouds came through
    I found you on a sidewalk; a parakeet of blue.
    I put you in a box to keep you dry and warm,
    and searched for your owner in a torrential storm,
    and called lost and found at the Humane Society
    Yes, they would take you - for a twenty dollar fee.
    At lunch I went shopping for a cage for a bird.
    resigned to keep you since I had heard no word.
    I'd name you McNugget and invite you into
    The Shogun's little ark; my condo sized zoo.
    But two hours later as you shook and writhed
    I watched, in futility, as you shuddered and died.
    I know my answer if your real owner cares
    What happened to Nuggy and how did he fare
    Outside, this evening, i'll bury your body
    and dub thee a saint of pet owners' folly.

    McNugget

    ...and so it goes.

    Sad.

    Can you return the cage?
