Black bird

By Georgie   

Black bird, black bird
Where do you flee?
I searched among stiffs
And I saw you there having chimed their soul.
I knocked on my neighbor’s door
They said “it came, not for you,
But for those whose time had waned”.

Black bird, Black bird,
I wandered to a place where the sands
Couldn’t hold my feet.
Where I was one with the wind.
I saw people cry; I couldn’t lend my tears,
The streets were Red
And rue cajoled their eyes
I saw the black bird; vulture of human soul.
Its somber gaze conjuring a sullen cloud
In the hearts of men.

Black bird, Black bird,
Where are you now?
Who is next to lay like
A Tree cut down?
