Raven and the French Fry Dilemma – p.4

August 23, 2011 at 10:50 am 2 comments

The rest of the afternoon was quiet; Raven managed to get just enough to eat, and so did Cardinal. They kept their distance from each other, and each went about his own business.

Just before sunset, Raven was standing in the shade of a dumpster, preening his wings, when he heard a sound. As it grew closer he recognized it as the annoying cry of the Seagull. Raven looked up, thinking how glad he was that there was no more food for Seagull to steal, and hoping that would make his visit brief this time. He saw, to his horror, that Seagull was not alone, but had brought his entire flock.

Thirty-something gulls descended on the parking lot and began to make a terrible racket. Raven looked over at Cardinal, and the small red bird was literally hopping mad, bouncing from one foot to the other and flapping his wings. The gulls paid him no mind.

Raven’s home and hunting ground had been invaded. He flew to the top of the dumpster and looked out at the scene; he had to formulate a plan or else risk losing all the coming night’s fries…

    “The Jets are gonna have their day
    “The Sharks are gonna have their way
    “We’re gonna rock it tonight!
    They’re gonna get it tonight,
    They began it,
    They began it,
    They began it…!!!”

    Wow. So seagulls equate to gang thugs? I rather agree with that, what with seagulls pooping on everything.
