The Laughing Crow
by Frank Elkins ©2012

"This morning I awoke to the sound of mockery...
Caw! Caw! Caw!
A Crow -
laughing at me... "

“You ridiculous little man!”
Caw! Caw! Caw! “
You work so hard and get nowhere.”
Caw! Caw! Caw!
“Your life is completely meaningless...”
Caw! Caw! Caw!
“How silly you are!”
Caw! Caw! Caw!

In younger years
I might have had the last laugh -
Expressing my sense of humor
with a twelve-gauge shotgun:

Heckling back in a burst
of air and black floating feathers,
showing the crow who was boss!
But now that I am older -
More mature, and wiser...

I just laughed back.
