Angry Birds and the ad man

by Kristina Woodhill

angry birds
red – straight arrow
blue – see me three
yellow – a wedge, not cheese
white – big egg dropping
black – blushing red bomb


green heads
big green heads
big green helmet heads
big mustached green heads
smiley sneaky nest-egg stealers


pull back the sling shot
aim for the right spot
“poof” goes the green

ad m

birds mutter, riled up
pigs chuckle, lined up
shoot to the next scene

ad ma

each level's blockade
rock crushing cavalcade
all fall down

ad man

birds see the new shill
wants to pay the shoe bill
ad man's face

is the new pig clown


Author's Note: Angry Birds can be had on PC for $4.99, or an App for iPhone, etc. Game creator Rovio has tacked a short ad before each level on the update for iPad, even tho the game already cost $4.99. NOW they have angry game-playing birds!

As if we don't get enough advertising on TV, radio, internet videos, etc. etc. Thanks to the government, our local TV station has finally toned down the blaring commercials it plays in-between segments of an given show. I like what you've done here Kristina in both message and style to express it.
