Dining with Crow

In dress, mortician's finery
pure ebony entire,
eshewing tints of purity,
He dropped in by my fire.
It was His island after all;
his chapel ceiling, trees
I see what little I possess
and He
          Possesses what He sees.

The trickster of the Inuit
this feathered deity,
I thought He wished to share the Pike
His lake gave up to me.
But thrifty with His speech He was,
As Gods are want to be,
He came around to share my meal
That's all
          the time He had for me!

Oooh, I really like this poem about the "Inuit...feathered deity." The Aztecs had one too. Very cool way to describe a mortician, Wayne, and I do hope you'll enter your new limerick in the Taxing Times contest. Love, Carolyn
