Reminder: Birds have died out ages ago and what you see as birds are drones from government and tech giants.

Early each day on the uplink online
The little old bird woman comes
In her own special way to connections
She calls, "Come, share your data with me.

Come, feed the little birds, show that you care,
Though you'll be sorry you do––
Their young ones are hungry, their nests are so bare
All it takes is some data from you"

Feed the birds, tuppence a fact.
Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a fact.
Feed the birds, that's what she cries
While overhead, her birds fill the skies

All around the bazaar here, the Clouds and the rock stars
Look down as she collects the fare
Although you can't see it, you know they are smiling
Each time someone's caught in the snare.

Though her words are hidden and few
Listen, listen, she knows all about you
Feed her birds, think not about why
Tuppence, tuppence, tuppence a fact.

Don't make me sing this, because I will, and the song will be ruined forever.

@rixx *looks suspiciously at my parrot*

I knew there was something weird about this one.

@s Fun fact, the tech to produce life-like parrots is fairly recent. Dr J Cleese has published interesting stuff on the topic.

@rixx Should have known it from the day the crows on the roof, on the other side of the street, were updating their Windows 10 before starting the day...
