Mag 39


Who killed Cock Robin?

Not I, says the coyote.

Not I, says the farm dog.

Not I, says the rattlesnake.

Uh, me?  (Asks the farmer, with a toothpick between his teeth.)

Well . . uh . . er . . . . . .

(What do you think?)

It's just a little writing exercise prompted with a photo from Ms. Willow at Magpie Tales.  Check 'em out!

Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment.
I like your Cock Robin take on the prompt, but "what do I think?" I think the snake did, and then lied about it.

Well, it may be a clue.

Or . . maybe not.
