poultry excepted

the sign next to the swan says pedestrians only. who do swans think they are ? i was thinking of doing a citizen’s arrest, but wasn’t sure whether this was applicable to her majesy’s swans. and i didn’t fancy my chances of survival.
there’s nothing worse for young kids than seeing their father mauled by a swan. so this time i let it go. next time i’ll take some kind of electrical device.
i seem to have real issues with swans.
