A Shrivel of Critics

May June 2013 064

A Gaggle of Geese

A Murder of Crows

A Hummingbird Charm

It’s what everyone knows


A Bellowing of Bullfinches

A Cloud of Seafowls

I think we’re aloft

With a Parliament of Owls


But are you aware

Of a Surfeit of Skunks

A Blessing of Unicorns

Or a Struggle of Drunks


An Unction of Undertakers

A Cowardice of Curs

A Converting of Preachers

This knowledge ensures


People will leave you

In Flocks and in Gangs

A Blush or a Shuffle

With tails and with fangs


Control is the answer

To the question of how

To influence groups

We label them now
