The Parrot, as lord of duality, makes great sense to
me. I can hear his mimic, and the confusion it might cause. "Is
Tlotli calling for rain, or are we again confounded by Toznene."
And I guess too, here where I live, a Mockingbird might be the Lord of
Duality. But at the same time, Parrots tend to sit around being somewhat
supercilious around other Parrots and they are nut and fruit eating.
They do not rush from here to there, and I do not believe a Parrot is
ever in so undignified a mood as to chase other flying creatures.
Rather, their stance with respect to others, is judged by the witty
utterance, the off hand remark and a host of expressions by which to
demonstrate their disgust through slow and deliberate movement.
More interesting perhaps is how a Parrot might approach his
or her attitude to footwear. Would Parrots, for example,
approve of Welly Wanging as a competitive sport, and for
those who might be curious, Welly Wanging is throwing
gumboots and is taken quite seriously in the more rural
parts of the United Kingdom and in much of Finland. Or would
Parrots consider such an activity a touch deranged and
somewhat pointless. And here, I know with some degree of
certainty that Mockingbirds would heartily approve of the
sport, they enjoy that sort of thing, it sets their fire
burning. As well, it's interesting to ask whether Parrots
would share the view that sees insult in shoe tossing.
My own thought is that they probably would. And
for this reasons, I kind of think there's no way
Mockingbirds can be thought of as lords of duality.
