Figure of speech

Donkeys bray
and cats meow,
horses neigh
but dogs bow-wow.

Humans talk
their ghosts boo,
parrots squawk
and Holsteins moo.

Villains sneer
and ducks quack,
you my dear
are talking cack!

  1. You sure got your animal sounds sorted, Hobbo! It’s right precious, it is! πŸ˜€ Sorry. Been watching a TV show set in southern USA somewhere. I”m not actually sure what “talking cack” means but it doesn’t sound complimentary.

  2. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Very good. It might also be Flemish, as in kakken=to shit. Am I allowed to say shit on your blog? During our weaving boom, we brought Flemish weavers to Lancashire. They brought the word with them. If they’d been HGV drivers, they’d have had better pay.
