The early bird gets the worm, they say. I say, better to be up before the worms. Competition, you know? Isn’t it all? Capitalism, democracy, stars, freedom, and stripes?

Whatever. The topic is birds and sorting oneself out as a feathery friend. Early bird, night owl, bird brain, duck, goose, turkey or just plain fowl. A slice of turducken to go perhaps.

Taking quill and ink to page, it seems a quandary, this question of bird type. Sun, moon. Black, white. What of the grays? The civil twilight?

Up early and up late. The candle has two ends. Burn both.

In response to the Daily Prompt, are you an early bird or a night owl?
