    The age old story of the cuckoo invading other birds's nests, so true in life.
    A very good sonnet Atfab. (Report) Reply

    The poor crow never knows the truth and it happily nurtures the aliens in its nest! The lazy ones thrive on the sweat and labour of the industrious! Every where there is exploitation! The last two lines contain valid truth! Enjoyed! ! (Report) Reply
