   Their mother lay dead
     in the middle of the road.
   The car carried on.

   The sun rose distressed.
     The youngsters were on their own.
   Both parents now dead.

   The orphans were cold
     and huddled together.
   Alone, abandoned.

   Hunger pangs grew.
     The weakest one cried out and
   the others shivered.

   Black hearted Raven
     Found the unguarded nest
   and did his evil deed.

   Watching in horror
     a sparrow sobbed.
