Creature 184 – the great escape

“We’re just 4 ordinary Colly birds. Mining is our game. It’s a hard life chipping away at coal all day long so when this geezer jollies up to us and asks us how we’d like to make a couple of extra bob without the need to pop down the mine for one or two weeks we jumped at the chance. How was we to know to try to bake us in a pie! I say, what a liberty. At the dead of night just hours as we were due to be cooked like a common goose, we used our skills to burrow out. A lucky escape and no mistake.”
