"Drucilla covered her ears. She no longer wanted to hear the carping of the strange raven about her costume. Edgar, her pet raven, turned to the intruder " One more word Jack and and you’ll be plucked and oven ready"
The strange raven flew off and Edgar went back to teaching Drucilla the words of ‘The Raven Song’ ready for her appearance in the United Church of the Foolish Virgins Christmas Pantomime.”
