Magpie tale #39


Willow's weekly writing challenge




His temperament is hardwired
driven by duty- he is called to answer
Not free
but bought and sold
And when he is no longer useful
his master
cold bloodily murders him
silencing his only grace
his devotion to the rising sun

  16. Without humans invading the earth, there would only be killing from necessity -- never from sport, entertainment or cruelty.

    Run rooster, run.
