Kill him! Chop him up! Baste him! The Zen Parrot Haka

We discovered Hakas after catching an All Blacks rugby match on the tellie.

This was particularly fortuitous considering the recent election here in the States. We decided we needed to adopt a Haka for The Zen Parrot as we face off against the Barbarian Teabagger Hordes for the next two years. So with apologies to the All Blacks, we proudly present The Zen Parrot Haka:

Ka tū te IhiihiStand up to the fear
Ka tū te WanawanaStand up to the terror
Ki runga ki te rangi,To the sky above!
E tū iho nei, tū iho nei, hī!Fight up here, high up there. Yeah!
Ponga rā!The shadows fall!
Kapa o Pango, aue hī!Team in Blue, yeah!
Ponga rā!Darkness falls!
Kapa o Pango, aue hī, hā!Team in Blue, Hell Yeah, Ha!
The words of both 'Kapa o Pango' and 'Ko Niu Tireni' are taken from the Haka of the earthquake god Ruaumoko, Ko Ruaumoko e ngunguru nei, slightly modified to reflect The Zen Parrot Blue.
