THURSDAY: The Tea Party

BY KATHERINE ADLAM

Copyright is held by the author.

Eyes sharp and beady
We fluff our feathers
Preening
Settling in our chairs
To sip our tea.
I sit back
We cackle
At our past forgotten
Pecked to shreds at our feet.

An unexpected side attack
And I’m left bleeding.

We dip our beaks in unison
I see the tea is red and steaming
And realize what is served is me.
