Maybe I'm Obsolete Like The Crow
I’ve been around for a long time
and so have crows.
Nobody thrills to a crow sighting.
A crow is black and perches in a tree
No cause for excitement.
Not one edgy young thing calls out,
“I see you.”
Mostly the edgy, trendy, cool, hip, rad
(I don’t even know the latest “in” word),
mostly these people pay crows no mind.
Haven’t they heard of the Crow Toll?
That’s what the squashed raccoon
pays on the pavement.
but oh, so useful.
Or tell me, children,
have you ever considered sky burial?
