    Damned Crows

The parade has passed by
clowns gone, crowd walking away.
Watching a wind twirl a wrapper
lonely claims another day.

We laughed long ago
youthful dancing until dawn.
Cleaning crew begins their work
feeling unhinged, something wrong.

Twirling batons, colorful floats
majestic in their rolling march.
"Talk of the town", say ordinary
voice long unused, raspy and harsh.

Mother shields at the sound
pulls a smile, questioning along.
The loneliness comes crashing in
broom pusher whistling our song.

A turn with tears, stinging, angry
hunched with gait; shuffling, slow.
The others don't know, pray never
"never more" gloats the crow.

I liked this, not because I related to it, and not because I knew the subject, but just because I did.

thanks, Hoot.  Shall i address you as Hoot?
yes i was equally shocked to see no replies...perhaps the Poe reference frightened off potential posters?
thanks again, have been greatly encouraged
by all your encouragement!

appreciate your input, Joy
i kinda liked this one myself (rarity)
most people that know me in real life
think i've led this intense, tragic
life...lol don't believe it tis fiction.
anyway, thank you again.

Hey dude!! This is rather Poe-ish. I don't think that should put anyone off though. And since I know you very well, not everything is as non-tragic and non-intense as you'd like us to believe LOL. Love you lots bro. and really like the post even cloaked in all it's sadness.
