True, embellished and fictional stories for your amusertainment

Fractured Cliché #47

Once while on my back porch reading, came a flock of ravens feeding

Taking turns to watch for danger following unspoken laws

Then the forest creatures stirred, chasing off the shiny birds

As if nature briskly calling, calling all the beaks and claws

There was a bird I will remember screaming out its ghostly caws

Quoth the raven, `Never was.’

Fractured Cliché: Quoth the raven, `Never was.’

Correct Cliché: Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.’

May the farce be with you!

Your IFF,

Pam

Quoth the raven 'Never was'

Quoth the raven, ‘Never was.’

  1. Boasting boasting of cats a-chasing! A haunting caw of “Never clawed!”
    (Very clever!)
