bird

A few months ago, someone gave a bird to my father. Took it to our house.
Pertama datang, burungnya berkicau terus. Jam 2 atau 3 pagi masih berkicau. Kakak gw aja ampe kesel. Berhari-hari berkicau terus sampai suatu hari dia ga berkicau lagi. Diem. Keluarga gw pada bingung. Dipancing-pancing, ga mau berkicau juga. Kan aneh punya burung tapi burungnya ga berkicau. Mungkin sakit, katanya. Masa' sih?

Belakangan, kadang-kadang burungnya berkicau tapi cuma bentar. Beberapa hari kemarin, gw liat, dia begitu hiperaktif di kandangnya. Jumping up and down. I told my father, "Maybe it wants to fly". My father agreed with me but the bird was still in its cage. A few days later, yesterday precisely, it was dead.

Walaupun bukan punya gw, gw sedih. Kenapa mati? Makanan dikasih, minumnya juga diganti kok. Poor bird. Keluarga gw ga tau jenisnya apa bahkan ga ngasih dia nama! How cruel we are.

Bye bye bird. Sorry.
