OMEN OR NOT

1.

The loud crow perching

On the Dunkin Donuts’ roof

Could be an omen.

2.

“Hey, YOU! Don’t eat here!”

Might be what the bird cawed

As people approached

3.

“A murder of crows”

Is how their flocks are described.

What is one crow called?

4.

The crows in The Wiz

Are like people in the hood

That just love to hate.

5.

Was it an omen,

Or just a bird making noise

Trying to scare me?

6.

Ravens are not crows.

They’re both beautiful black birds

But they’re not the same.

7.

Not superstitious-

But I don’t ignore omens.

I’ll eat somewhere else!
