MAGIC LOVE CROW



The Muse #45


"Be Free" by Magic Love Crow



MAGIC LOVE CROW


What trickery is this?
'Beware!', I say again, 'Beware!'
Behold, an avian wolf in sheep's clothing.
She strives to lure and enslave all unsuspecting souls.
To bind them for ever into an unfriendly alien kingdom.

She masquerades as a benevolent matchmaker,
Promoting freedom and the promise of unending love.
Yet she is a Raven through and through,
A demonic general, commanding all her legions,
In a network which pollutes and poisons all around us.

Like a Magpie she will thieve and steal all who are precious,
All who are clad in bright attractive righteousness,
To suppress and darken their hopes and their desires for ever.
She will abduct all who she may conquer high amongst the trees,
To their Rooks' nest prisons, where only vipers dare to tread. 

The air is filled with their unending conversation,
A cacophony of 'caws' to invade the silence of the day.
Shouting aloud fake 'freedom' to lure all who will dare to listen. 
Their wings beat strongly in search of a friendly thermal
On which they may rest and soar aloft to seek and find their prey.

Thought I 'd be devil's advocate here and do the opposite, perhaps, to others.

Sorry, crow family, you are quite nice really and I discovered that Ravens in particular are very intelligent creatures. And before today I did not know Magpies and Jays are part of the crow family.


To all my new friends on The Sunday Muse I wish you a happy weekend and a wonderful March.


Once again Carrie, thank you for your prompt, and to Magaly too.

  1. I like the dark path you took on this one Eddie. I especially like the line, "like a magpie she will thieve and steal all who are precious." Cool and creative writing indeed. I love your photos in your uniform by the way. Hope you have a good weekend to.

    1. Thank you, Hilary. Well I am flattered you think these are worthy of publication. I do have a fair number of poems and writings which I can refine, so maybe. My son in law is a designer/artist so maybe, if I could find a publisher interested. he could do the illustrations. Encouraged. :)

  5. This is creepy...and I sort of want to read more. A compelling tale of facades and locked towers.

  9. Crows and ravens and magpies are wondrous creatures. But... just like in every group, there is one (even more) who can be a tad (or a lot) difficult. I guess your speaker found the black sheep, um... bird of the family.

    The tone of the piece made me think of the religious zealots who walk Time Square screaming of doomsday. I wonder if one of them has ever shouted about ravens and crows and such.

    Thanks a bunch for sharing, Eddie.
