THE RAVEN

THE RAVEN (NOT FROM POE) A raven chick attempted first flying lesson He didn't quite make his preplanned destination Mother bird stood by evaluating his flying foray Okay is good but good is not okay There's more to this story and it's all true Mother had something more before she was through When her little bird alighted on one of canyons' ledges She flew to him and placed a treat from her beak into the fledger's But there are some who have no use for birds Using birds as models for disparaging words Pointing a finger "bird brain" they will say Not realizing the finger is pointed the wrong way
