They're laughing at us, I just know it!

A murder of crows sat crowing

on power lines almost glowing

Plotting, scheming diabolically

of humans, namely you and me

Channeling the mad mind of Poe,

flapping wings sing a story of woe

They’re making Hitchcock proud,

from skeletal fields freshly plowed

I hear something, a tell-tale tapping,

turns out on me they’re all crapping

Nowhere to shower and covered in shit.

twas a bad situation, I humbly submit

Those murdering crows just sat high above,

Cackling, squawking, enjoying the sport of

Shit on the Human, unique to their species,

Playing Demented Tag with their own feces!

Yeah well, you forgot to add the parliament of owls. This is quite amusing, more so for me as the closest city to here is called Wagga Wagga, which in the local indigenous dialect, Wiradjuri, means place of many crows, although strictly speaking they are Australian Ravens. And another thing, my nickname out here in the boondocks is Poet, which a madwoman who is currently in rehab refers to me as Poe. Funny.

Thanks, the the outback Poe. I have no idea what part of Australia you live in, but it sounds cool!
