Friday 55 Flash Fiction #197 Noisy....






That noise is driving me mad, he thought.,

What a time to be practising singing.

No consideration for people who are trying to sleep.

Put a pillow over my head.

I'm at my wit's end, if I had a gun I'd shoot them.

I suppose it's no use complaining,

No-one can stop the Dawn Chorus.


Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

I hear it every morning. I guess sometimes it can be a bit loud.

As someone who works nights and has to try and sleep during the day this hits home.

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Scots Lass :)

I actually like it Anthony but only when the sun is shining!

That really must be annoying Beach!

Brian Miller said...

Awww. Poor birds! One or two round our way can be a bit 'scratchy' though!

Nice 55.

I have a woodpecker "morning chorus" jolts me up every time.

Gledwood said...

Hmmmm I know someone who went through severe post-natal depression who used to scream at the birdies every morning to shut the **** up!!

Akelamalu said...

I like it too Brian but only if I've had a good night. ;)

Scratchy voices can grate on the nerves AJ LOL

Never heard a woodpecker dawn chorus Bankerchick, but imagine it could cause a headache. ;)

Now that I can understand Gleds!

Nara Malone said...

Sometimes, very rarely, I feel that way about the whip-poor-wills at night.

Mama Zen said...

Ha! Excellent 55!

Akelamalu said...

That's an upsetting thought Valerie, no Dawn Chorus. :(

*smile* Dumdad

Don't you get it there G-man?

When you're trying to get to sleep I guess Nara?

Thanks Mama Zen x

we have an overhang between the first and second floor
the birds love perching there, usually at dawn and usually over my bedroom window
since they're NJ birds they don't sing as much as they seem to be cussing at each other ;)

Akelamalu said...

Chuckling at the thoughts of birds cussing each other here Dianne LOL
