Each week, I post three words. You write something using the words.

Then come back and post a link to the contribution with Mr. Linky (but please, link to the exact post, not your blog, by clicking on the exact post title and paste it to Mr. Linky below). As always, there's no hard-and-fast rule that you have to post on Wednesday.

This week's words:

Berserk; Duplicate; Quibble

Flocking behavior is the behavior exhibited when a group of birds, called a flock, are foraging or in flight. There are parallels with the shoaling behavior of fish, the swarming behavior of insects, and herd behavior of land animals.

Computer simulations and mathematical models which have been developed to emulate the flocking behaviors of birds can generally be applied also to the "flocking" behavior of other species. As a result, the term "flocking" is sometimes applied, in computer science, to species other than birds.

I do believe you.
While I promise I won't go
berserk, still I must
fly low to avoid
impact with all the other
birds of Quibble Quay
as they lift themselves
into the high flock southing
along the sun lines.

For myself, I shall
stay and duplicate my song,
looking after my heart.

  1. I like the last three lines the best'For myself, I shall
    stay and duplicate my song,
    looking after my heart.'


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
