Song of the Raven

By Red Valentinos All Rights Reserved ©

Horror / Poetry

Chapter 1

The song of the raven
T'is such a sad song
With sweet blackened feathers dampened with rain
And a small avian heart that's been broken so long

The cries and the caws and
The lies and the laws
Say shoot that black heathen down before he steals the corn

Yes, shoot, shoot, shoot Loki down
Give him no place nor no chair nor throne, now
Shoot, shoot, shoot that bird down
Shoot that black avian before he steals the corn

Peck at his nose and peck at his eyes
Peck away, peck away, away with the lies
Raven, peck 'way to your black heart's content 
Peck away, peck away
Peck out that lawman's rotten eyes

The cries and the caws and
The lies and the laws
Say shoot that black heathen before he steals the corn

Come back, dear Loki, come back, raven, now
I have a small throne here made from a lawman's shoe
It might be small, it might not be soft
But it's a throne your own

So fly down here, take up your seat
Eat away, eat away, eat away, raven
Have some corn with me, my dear raven
So, eat away, eat away, eat away, raven

Ahmad Momenai: it's so amazing to see the story build up, in each chapter a part would be started and made its way towards the main story and even sometimes i would doubt which story was the main story.i have read about half the story and it was worth every moment;i am a book worm and i have read LotR, Harry po...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

ChristianHooks: D'graive is the conduit the whoooole time. Can you believe that? DAMN NATURE YOU SCARY! WHAT IN TARNATION

B.K. Swain: Gripping story from beginning to end. Good characters and plot line kept me involved along the way. I liked the ending personally, even though it's not a "happy" one. My only criticism would be some run on sentences and grammar errors, but that's all easily fixed. Keep up the great work and looki...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

Jason78: Be careful, once you open this book you won't want to put it down. A dark comedy horror that has plenty of twists and turns that Keeps you guessing. Fantastic book from start to finish, loved the story and can't wait to read the next one.

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.
