A MURDER OF CROWS
By Neel Anil Panicker
They were a trio, a tightly knit team, Mary, Susan, and Anna. Mary was the spotter, the one tasked to ferret out the rich lone lost traveler about town.
Susan was the seeker, the one who played Mother Teresa and handheld the ‘victim’.
As the two new found ‘best friends forever’ would walk down a lonely alley, Anna, the reliever, would emerge, gun in hand, and dry clean the terror stricken duo of all their worldly belongings.
Before sun down, the three musketeers would have flown town.
No wonder in police circles their deed was christened ‘a murder of crows’.
