The Wombwell Rainbow

-Kerfe Roig “Crow”

Mirror mirror on the wall
who is the cleverest crow
of them all?

Caledonian crows?
The elite group of species, who
can use twigs to fish insects
out of holes and crevices,

whittle branches into hooks
tear leaves into barbed probes,
are innovative problem solvers,
blithely elegant,in pure dark robes?

Said the rook to the mirror
‘the latest research makes me shiver,
people will not consider us thirsty,
hungry, capable or free, since its

magpies, jackdaws and jays, were

and cool, tis no argument as scientists
say, and I just read the news on BBC, that
‘clever crows can use three tools’

‘Mirror mirror, now what’s your suggestion?

summit or a mediation, or a call for a corvid
crow collection?

    You know me and corvids but this is a total delight. Evidence of my obsession is that I just gifted myself MJ Cullinane’s Urban Crow Oracle deck… I decided it was necessary. ^_^
