A fairness of rooks

One magpie, six rooks.
Five content to let the fight progress fairly,
one to one,
until he looks like losing.


  1. Good job it wasn't a murder of crows!

  2. Dammit, I KNEW there was a more appropriate word but could only think of a parliament of owls ... now I don't know whether to be grateful to you for reminding me or cross because I could have done this better!

  3. Ah - sorry. Collective nouns are one of my pet projects. I know loads. Have books of them in fact.

    It's fine as it is. I loved this - because it relates so well to the actual terms.
