Song of the Raven

By Red Valentinos All Rights Reserved ©

Poetry / Horror

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
