Tittle Tattle

See the noisy tittle tattle,
As loud as any football rattle,
Rising to a roar then falling
To a piercing caterwauling.

Never were stampeding cattle
So frightened by the tittle tattle
Whose thunder way above the rooves
Is louder than the stomping hooves.

See a flock and hear the battles
Of furious, fighting tittle tattles,
A swarm of swooping angry beaks
That fill the air with dreadful shrieks.

Never was a bird so loud,
Louder than a football crowd,
Noisier than a fighter plane,
Enough to drive us all insane.
