In Defense of Crows, by A.J. Anwar

1/
for some crows are dreadful

but they only haunt
your imagined fears

crows are harmless birds

just throw a stick
they’ll flap away

2/
crows are unwitting victims
of color prejudices too

you just want to have enemies
but don’t want the[m] strong

and your prejudice ends when
a sturdy black mustang a best friend

3/
crows are merely a species
like you and I

they have their own ways
just like you or I

but it’s only you, never I,
who wish crows to all drop dead

while they will surely stick and stay
even if you look away
