Giant green bird outside on the lawn.

The man, already pink, was turning redder.

Worst thing since that magic fish came round.

Giant green bird eating something. But what?

The man, all red now, ran out.

He screamed. He cursed.

The giant green bird twitched its tail.

Precise, that twitch.

The man ran inside and hid.

Then, the bird was gone.

The man looked and looked and looked.

The bird was gone.

It never came back.
