Raven’s List


it’s so cold here among the living
gee mom i wanna go home
no, not suicidal
just tired
of seein’ all the peacocks
in front of all
the starving suffering children

no one envies peacocks
some think they’ll be ’em
all disdain ’em
do they strut to hide the knowing
they are no where
in evolving humankind?

hush little children don’t you cry
daddy’s gonna come home by and by
momma got ya cradled in her heart
a new day’s a’comin’
