Crows

William Kemmett

There is a rumor that you
can teach a crow to talk by
splitting his tongue and he
will never curse in fear of
you. He will eat little and
cost you nothing. Furthermore;
he will not pluck at his feathers
like an angry parrot or spit vomit
at you like a vulture.

Why not then have a pet crow?
Because they will grip your shoulder
like an eagle and crap all over
your shirt. They live forever and
speak in the tongue of no known
faith. Though they are countless,
a funeral of crows is for the one
that is taken.
