Curiosity ???
~~~~~~

About  a  half  mile  back
as  the  crow  has  flown
It's  the  scene  of  a  crime
where  old  Thomas  calls  home
~
The  eagle  has  landed
boasts this  big  talking  crow
as  he  lands  on  a  wire
with  train  track  below
~
Old  Thomas  was  due  for  a  feast
so  he  thought
As  he  sauntered  on  over
and  laid  by  the  track
~
The  crow  was  no  fool
he  could  see  quite  a  ways
Then  the  show  he  put  on
kept  the  cat  in  a  daze
~
The  train  thundered  by
on  the  long  shiny  rail
And  ripped  off  a  piece
of  old  Thomas's  tail
~
The  crow  mocked  old  Tom
said  his  tail  wasn't  lost
Just  over  that  track
he  said  it  was  tossed
~
When  curious  Tom
leaned  over  to  look
his  head  joined  his  tail
now  the  crow  is  a  crook

I'm not sure which one is worse off, perhaps me for laughing at them both..LOL

Your life must pass through the press of passion and pain to yield the wine of wisdom..
