Read Verse Daily: Scarlet Macaws by Pascale Petit ( )
The scarlet macaws want their red back, not puce or pink but rich rubescence. They squawk and screech and growl for the people to give it back.

Just head this on the radio and looked it up.

They don’t want to be eaten.
They don’t want to be sacrificed.
They don’t want to be shot for their celestial light
and lose their teeth and eyes.
