News Item: Secretary Kerry gets nowhere with calls for sanctions against Russia or

Yes, I am Kerr-ioki, the singing parrot, and I sing a song of peace ...
While you make war?
What is war but a means to peace? I sing of peace, of conflict resolution ...
You fly here, you fly there, you fly everywhere, all the time ...
Yes, I am a parrot. I like to fly ... And I like to talk ...
And nobody listens, but you must have millions of frequent flier miles ...
No, that is a real tragedy ... none at all on these government planes ... But what the
heck ... the wife's a billionaire ...
Marrying rich ... that's your real secret?

sing ... Oh yes, and I have a plan ...
