friday five

a russian tale

walking down the road,
there was a pigeon, two
rabbits, and a couple of
tovarichs. the rabbits
wandered off to the
gravelines and the
pigeon fell dead on
the spot. the tovarich
said to the other, as he
was contemplating a
problem on an abacus,
"I think today's going
to be a good day".

That's pretty sad when someone sees a pigeon fall dead and says that it's going to be a good day. But, I have to say I rather enjoyed this poem. I wouldn't mind seeing this expanded. Nice job. Have a nice day.

An interesting take on the prompt.

Interesting juxtaposition of the dead pigeon and the tovariches who don't seem to notice or care.
