The Vulture

by Bryan Thomas
Originally published by on 27/10/2013

Day One

He watched, and waited, and waited, and watched.

There were no carcasses in the valley.

Day Two

He flew, and soared, watched and waited.

But there were no carcasses in the valley.

Day Three

He watched, waited, flew, and soared. He imagined he was a military drone, although his big beak and feathers were a dead giveaway that he wasn't.

Not a carcass in sight.

Day Four

He flew, watched, soared, waited, shuffled, scratched, farted and pondered.

Not one carcass - zero, zilch, nada.

Day Five

There was a carcass in the valley! Unfortunately it was the vulture's.
