Polly’s Lament (my first drabble attempt)

Post by Blu_Tulip » Tue Jul 12, 2011 11:11 pm

We thought that the danger came from the sky, from the pterosaurs that turned us from predator to meat in one graceful swoop. And so we evolved. We, too, took to the air. We had to give up our bulk, but hollow bones seemed a fair trade; our beautiful raptor claws shrank, barely recognizable now. Who knew that the real danger would come from you lot, our former prey? In this rusty cage, I’ve had a lot of time to think about our eons of mistakes.

But in answer to your question: Yes. Of course I want the damn cracker.

Spectacular! Very well done. I think I'm going to read that again a couple of times just for shytes and gyggels.
