Raven’s Greed

Posted on Mar 2, 2013


Heard the news today
of the mighty and powerful
How they bleed the people dry
as they feast in their sumptuous halls

As they swoop down on the weak
picking at their bones
This the raven’s greed
as people struggle to heat their homes

They pick until nowt is left
yet continue on relentless still
Never giving up until death
not satisfied with their fill

No food is there to be had
or money to pay the raven’s
Air and tears is all they have
and blood to fill these heathens
