Guinea Fowl battle
Staccato machine gun fire
It is 2 a. m.
It is almost summer here in Cape Town and every animal is twitterpated. We are used to hearing the sounds of Egyptian Geese, Hadedah and Guinea Fowl squabbling loudly over territory all day long; but not usually in the middle of the night!
This is the third morning in a row I’ve had a very early wake up call. Add to this my crippling allergies and I am walking around during the day like a Zombie!
post script: For Scooj – I know you’re counting! Strictly speaking ‘fire’ is one syllable, but regional accents may break it into two; ‘fi-yur’. So if you pronounce it that way here is an alternate second line: ‘Rapid machine gun fire’.
I went with ‘staccato’ because it conveys the sound better.
