THE BLACK CROW




It's always a black crow, already in kindergarten.
The one that will always have the nicest, newest
and most shiny toys.

It's always a black crow in school, it is he who
cries out the highest and makes lots of noise 
and bustle.

It's always a black crow at the workplace,
it is he who pushed the most, hoes on the others
and thinks he knows best.

It's always a black crow in the neighborhood, 
who inspects the street and think that his crow's
nest is best.

It's always a black crow in the circle of friends,
which flutters with his wings and takes the whole
show, but it is the one who ends up with none!
