I am not dead yet              I can dance and I can sing

No need to call the doctor         Cause I'm not yet dead

Parrot 5.1.0 "Zombie Parrot" Released!

    Flat on the bunk again, he ran for his life. The Parrot stalked him
    through the grey hours of morning, smoothing its fractal feathers,
    shuffling itself slowly into clarity as though at the end of a

    a shape,
        a shape,
            a wink
