The Scavenger

by Ruby Tuesday

Age Group: Adult

The raven is known to be a cheat
A scavenger, a predator
And highly opportunistic
I should have known that you
Would be all four
You stalked my dreams in shadow
And called to me with a shrill
Overwhelming cry
You read to me the words
Of poets long past
And then you followed in his footsteps
Your black feathers rustling in
When he was finished with his meal
You stepped up and
What was left of my carcass you
Devoured with relish
As you ate, you promised me
That I was your most satisfying meal
And you would nevermore need another
And then, when her mate was away
You scavenged again
Nevermore, indeed
