Today’s picture prompt from The Haunted Wordsmith:
The prosecution’s case depended on the testimony of an eye-witness to 483 individual acts of piracy, kidnapping and theft, as well as an array of other allegations.
The defense lawyer smiled, he knew the witness would not even be allowed in court, let alone be asked to raise his wing and swear on the holy scriptures that he was telling the whole truth…
His client Captain Black Beard had nothing to fear from his turncoat parrot. The defence lawyer could only guess what kind of bonus he would receive from his client after the trial was over.
