WOW! A puny spectacular! Birds of a feather do flock together. At first I thought that you might lay an egg; but, but on the sunny side, you did not even crack a shell.

This little tale is chock full of bird-related puns that come together to form the picture of a scuff law getting railroaded by an eager cop. He nicely steps around half the charges but the other two hang like an albatross around his neck.

    Wow, what a concise review! Love it. Also the extra albatross.

A lot of thought must have gone into this work, and I find it quite clever. My favourite lines are "You've got a lot of gull" and "I have no egrets." Pretty funny. You have shown considerable imagination and ingenuity to come up with this idea. Good job.

I can only imagine how much time you must have put into creating this Pun filled poem. I think this will do well in the contest and I wish you the best of luck. Don and Vicki.

This meets the contest requirements splendidly as you deliver a pure murder (flock of crows) of fun feathered puns on the wing. Since this is so close to one about fish done like this I expect you will take the red ribbon just like that one did. Good luck in the voting and thank you very much for sharing it.

    I hope I find that fish poem. Not sure who did it yet. Thank you for the kind review.

    Lisa May about a month or so ago. It might have been a short story, but the concept is the same except using fishies instead of birdies.

This story sounds like someone with a bird brain is trying to match wits with an officer of the law intent on issuing a citation. Why not just take wing and fly away, living to live free for another day. This took a good deal of thought and planning to keep it straight and on point, for that alone I salute you. It was also entertaining and for that I also salute your efforts. Good job.

This is very cute. I don't know if I could have come up with quite so many bird names on the "fly". I like that the poem tells a story, and the dialogue is a lot of fun. It ends a little abruptly though. Just another line or two could give the story a more satisfying conclusion, such as by showing Mr. White being put behind bars, or closing the dialogue more thoroughly. Even so, I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing!
