I thought you could just suck the venom out of the bite! Yuk!!(Hey, I fixed your Mr. Linky...the problem was a "." at the end of your URL!)
An Aussie Magpie ~ clear and simple! And wonderfully fun!
Thanks for the fix, Willlow, and you can suck if you like, depends where the bite is, I guess... that's when you discover who your real friends are! Oh stoppit!
We can’t save ‘is life.‘Ee ‘asn’t an ‘ope in ‘ell!”I was trying to make this part out...Im a bit slow but when I did I laughed at both my idiocy and your creativity. Bravo
Proper English that - like wot I speak.
Nice poem with an interesting take on the picture. Good work.
did the the snake get away?...bkm
Vivid narration to the image! Great! I look forward to more!
Rather ghoulish! But a dramatic story in a few words.
Cor' Blimey what a great Magpie, from "down under."
Nice accent Stafford and a bit of lateral thinking re the prompt ;)
Fun twist on the prompt!
The sound of Bow Bells in Mooloolaba. :-)
Love what you did with this one. Awesome work!:-)
Irreverent as usual Stafford. More Cockney than Aussie. Our American friends are confusing us wiv our old dart cuzzins.
I really enjoyed your magpie! When my little brother was 8 he was bitten in the leg by a rattle snake. He got lucky, our neighbors had a suction kit and that was very lucky because we were 45 minutes from the nearest hostpital.
you have taken a delightful turn on the prompt...very enjoyable poem.
LOL! That was nice! A good laugh and a satisfying read.
Tragic, and yet rather brilliant in a comedic sense :D Truly a recipe for a wonderful Magpie Tale.

Glad your link is fixed..couldn't comment on last weeks...maybe I can go backThis one made me read it out loud..and what fun I had
hate to laugh at such a misfortune but this just read way too funny..great magpie!
Well done! It was a joy to read and the accent crowned it all. :)
What a fabulous post! Quick sharp and witty! But how many great minds are thinking alike...? Stafford - I incorporated a 'hope in hell' bit in my (rather long) ditty, too! I didn't cheat - I promise! You'll have to put your arm round your jotter more so I can't copy you in future.....!

have been there when they made that cut to suck the life back into someone...nice quick write...
I had to laugh only reading the title - it speaks for itself ... :-) ps: how shall I call you? Stafford, Staff, or Ray? (apology I'm just a lil confused ... ;-)
Gone to heaven so quickly..pity..fun is almost always correct!
Too funny - in a dark sort of way. Great magpie. Loved it.
Ohmigosh - I love this!
oh hahahah darkly funny is right!
He's a gonner for sure. Bet I know where he got bitten.....Hilarious!
Hilarious! Great job. Also on the dog poem...so true!
You've recreated the scene perfectly. Great word choice.
