Coal-Black Crow

by Alice Parris

The coal-black crow
Who comes to mock me
Announcing the impending 
Death of someone I know,
Has had a mishaps.

I saw him today, hopping
Around in the parking lot
In front of Home Depot;
Incapable of flying.
Death's grip must be slippin'.

More than likely it is due
To the excessive abuse of 
Employee sick days, and an 
Increase in the number of 
Employees needed in Iraq.
