When God, disgusted with man, 
Turned towards heaven.
And man, disgusted with God, Turned towards Eve, Things looked like falling apart.
But Crow .
.
Crow Crow nailed them together, Nailing Heaven and earth together - So man cried, but with God's voice.
And God bled, but with man's blood.
Then heaven and earth creaked at the joint Which became gangrenous and stank - A horror beyond redemption.
The agony did not diminish.
Man could not be man nor God God.
The agony Grew.
Crow Grinned Crying: 'This is my Creation,' Flying the black flag of himself.
