If I was a parakeet

If I was a parakeet in a cage,

I'd move sideways,
with rapid, short steps
on my wooden stick
up to the tiny bell hanging from the ceiling,
slap it with my beak,
and make the bell ring,

then move rapidly back,
stop halfway
and think to myself;

-well, it's about time to go back
and ring the bell again.
