You all may think me common and plain
Round and grey, head bobbing about
A bird of the gutter, a blight, a stain
You’ve got me all wrong, without a doubt

Neck feathers shine with rainbow and gold
Surviving even after I was cast away
In favor of telephones, out with the old
You may think me dirty but I’m here to stay

What am I?
