A Murder Of Crows - Poem by r james sterzinger

on thirty-sixth avenue
half-way between
the hospital
and home
I passed
the casket company truck
making morning deliveries

on the hill
was a murder of crows
I thought
then what do you call
a truckload of caskets?

a circumstance?

    I love this too much. I have always loved how crows are called a 'murder', and you know, a circumstance of caskets sounds just about right. Are you sure you made that up? (smile) (Report) Reply
