Shadow of Death

I walk with a Crow
Above my head
I leave it to a Crow
To be my eyes
Be my protector
Through these nights

Lets go down the streets
Block One
Look at the crowd
Very loud
Surround sounds
As I walk with my Crow

Next block
Very dark
No crowd
Not loud
A couple peeps
Nothing neat
Nothing clean
Look at the trash
Plenty cash
But not a pretty task
If you wanna ask
As I walk with my Crow

Next block
Busy street
Pretty clean
Has a crowd
Gas station or two
It's nothing cool
Once a bullet comes through
Halloween, is everyday
Walking these streets
You wanna see my eyes
Look at my Crow
Wanna picture
Look up a Crow
Look at the picture
Look at the eyes
Remind you of mine
Now!
Who wanna make the crime
Make a shadow of death
Through the eyes of my Crow

    You've been on PS for a long while, and I'm only discovering you now. This was a very atmospheric & gripping piece. I hope to see something new from you soon enough!
