In this urban free verse poetry, “Old Black Crow Wins the Prize.”
Have you ever watched crows? The other day, I was sipping on a cup of coffee on my deck watching the funniest thing, there were a squirrel and three black crows competing over a crumpled bag of leftover french fries.
They seemed intimidated by the McDonald’s bag, but one fry happens to fall out. Then game on! I couldn’t help but laugh, reminded me so much of ourselves as competitors in the game of life. Had to share an urban free verse and digital art piece, it might grab a chuckle.
Urban Free Verse: Old Black Crow Wins the Prize
Over yesterday’s French fry.
Sprawled across green slivers.
Gray squirrel gets
In on the action
Chasing our black feathers.
And the wise old crow who is so sly
Hops and stalks in unnoticed
And he wins the prize.
