  THE GREAT BLACK CROW  

The crow--the crow! the great black crow!
He cares not to meet us wherever we go;
He cares not for man, beast, friend, nor foe,
For nothing will eat him he well doth know.
    Know--know! you great black crow!
It's a comfort to feel like a great black crow!

The crow--the crow! the great black crow!
He loves the fat meadow--his taste is low;
He loves the fat worms, and he dines in a row
With fifty fine cousins all black as a sloe.
    Sloe--sloe! you great black crow!
But it's jolly to fare like a great black crow!

The crow--the crow! the great black crow!
He never gets drunk on the rain or snow;
He never gets drunk, but he never says no!
If you press him to tipple ever so.
    So--so! you great black crow!
It's an honour to soak like a great black crow!

The crow--the crow! the great black crow!
He lives for a hundred year and mo';
He lives till he dies, and he dies as slow
As the morning mists down the hill that go.
    Go--go! you great black crow!
But it's fine to live and die like a great black crow!

                                                                Philip James Bailey.
