7. Crows

It gets dark around here early

Because of all the crows

What they want and where they came from

No one really knows

Crows are sour and surly

with reason, I suppose

 

There are crows, crows in the trees

Saying crow things, doing as they please

There are crows, crows everywhere

But when I think of you, dead, I don’t care

 

It gets light around here slowly

because of how it goes.

Everyday we hear the same dumb

list of those crows’ woes.

Thinking they’re so holy

while leaving mementoes…

 

There are crows, crows in the trees

Saying crow things, doing as they please

There are crows, crows everywhere

But when I think of you, dead, I don’t care

 

I don’t care

because I know you love me

unlike all the crows lurking above me…
