Quoth the Ravens Nevermore

We are shiny, sleek, black birds,
Don’t underestimate our wit,
This story we tell to you, 
is for your benefit-

We can mimic your speech
and are among the smartest fowl,
we’re clever and shrewd, 
and like a wolf, can howl,

A constable, a conspiracy 
and an unkindness we're called,
teaming together for take-downs, 
we can make larger prey fall-

We make complex decisions 
and at times frolic and play, 
performing acrobatic tricks in the air
at any time during the day-

We nest in desert rock cavities 
and in tall forest conifer trees, 
and hide in beach cliff crevices 
that hang out over the coastal seas-

On land we take others’ food 
that we’ve managed to cunningly seize,
letting others do the hard work first,
and then taking what we please-

In ancient times, we fueled the myths
of symbols both good and bad,
We have a wide repertorie of calls,
To be misunderstood makes us very sad-

Quoth the Ravens Nevermore!
