Daily Prompt : Catapult

In response to daily post’s prompt : Catapult

Story of a maiden

My in-laws placed the red chillies on a sheet,

But the dreadful Ravens were having a treat,

Guarding the pepper was a naïve maiden,

Who was a  young one from distant Aden .

She announced out loud she had a sling-shot,

To drive them from the yard to forget her not.

Something was not right she soon understood,

The Ravens continued to eat the tasty food.

She screamed and cried for help that day,

I rushed out to know what she had to say.

She yelled and said,  ‘why aren’t the birds scared?’

I told her the way she held the slingshot was weird.

The crows knew she was a novice who had no idea,

How to use the weapon she brought in that area!
