Save the CrowSave The Crow?
What if Monsieur crow doesn't know he needs saved?
What if the way of the gutter in his mind is the only way
a broken wing or sickly tattered feathers
Doesn't feel wrong, just shows how he's weathered
If you splint his wing and give him seed
Does he know its help, if he doesn't know that he needs?
Always crude , even though wise and profound,
the aggrieved wanderer may not know to leave ground
Although you may seem to hold him captive and screened,
one day you'll look and he'll be long gone and free
Our flawed humanity wants him to fly wings unfurled
But in his dirty little gutter, he's king of the whole world!
