Limerick for Pinkie
Our Pinkie's no garrulous cockatoo!
She seldom will speak when she's talkèd to.
We'll forgive her; she's blest
With a fine salmon crest,
And besides, she's an expert nutcracker too.

Stagecraft students at the Frank Sinatra School for the Arts have been the primary caretakers for Pinkie, the talking parrot, during her stay at the school this month. Throughout the month they have been trying to teach Pinkie to use a basic stagecraft term, "lights go." Pinkie can be fickle.
