Language Valentine

Birds use only verbs
To communicate look wait go
While other animals know
Nouns and can recognize them
In their proper context
As terms of endearment or not
But only a human being
Would pronounce something
As shaky as an adverb or
As unreliable as an adjective
Just to pad out the picture
With all kinds of qualifiers
And conditional clauses
When the only word I ever wanted
Was a simple yes or no
