Who Am I?

Updated: Jul 1



Who am I?

Dark as night

Medium height

Corvidae

I flap through the sky

Don’t you know why?

Gliding is for others

I flock to the woods

Where open areas may be

I love campgrounds, dumps

And parks in the city

Hiding from humans

But a special few

The ones who love and feed me

Are the only ones I allow to view

My family means much

Even when a mate is found

We’re all connected

Each one of us bound

A wonderful life

That many humans refuse to learn

We’re the demon bird

And they think we should burn

So I really don’t need

To put on much of a show

Have you guessed who I am yet?

I’m me…a beautiful crow
