The crows

The crows cawed cawed a curse,

The busy people never knew,

Noisily amongst their kin they carried,

Secret keeping they didn’t do.

Beyond the dragons of ire,

Where seething flames spit unhindered through darkness and light,

Beyond the mountains of desire,

Where unsurmountable peaks brushed against canvas of sky,

Did they stop to quench their thirst from teeming rivers of plentitude?

Did they stop to admire the valleys of unwilting blooms ?

What transpired between then and now,

The busy people never knew,

The crows cawed cawed a curse,

Putting all to slumber,

Sleeping beauty like I not know?

Shrouded in minds of obscurity,

Lying thicketed in clouds of uncertainty.

The crows cawed cawed a curse,

Putting all to slumber,

Sleeping beauty like I not know?

Only to wake up,

21 years into the 21st century,

And to find,

People scared of people,

The crows cawed cawed a curse,

And flew.
