And Yet we don’t say Hamburger

A parrot
will say nut
to signify something he likes
not so different
from people,
as parrots are wont to be
who will say “Sweet!”
and “Hot Dog!”
for the things they like
it can even be the conceptual centerpiece of a movie
I’m looking at you “Dude Where’s My Car”
and yet…
we don’t say Hamburger.
