'Girl who loves dead crows.'

'She really loved dead crows,
Even if they had a disease,
She'd find them in the roads,
She'd find them in the trees.

She wore their heads in her hair
And she'd stroke them all day,
Other Children were told to beware,
But she didn't mind what people would say.

Her favourite dead crow of all,
That she had hoped no one would discover
Was dangling in the hall,
Next to her recently deceased Mother.'

Honestly?
I've no idea. I don't have a particular way of writing things, most of the time it just springs to my head and boom, a new poem is created. Thank you <3

Love the poem, though I probably prefer live crows.

I put food out for the crows and I love watching them. I don't know why so many people seem to dislike them. I have a few crow photos in my gallery if you want to take a look.....

Sounds like me when I was younger. XD Of course, I didn't kill my mother or anything like that.

This reminds me of a time I was riding through the country and spotted a dead crow draped over some branches high in a tree. It had died right there on its perch, and the tree's limbs held it there like a hand, suspending it in the air. Awesomely creepy.

Lol haha! I'd be a little worried about you killing your mother and then casually confessing on Deviant Art. :P

That sounds pretty cool, yet creepy. As of recent I've found myself a little fascinated by roadkill. I have no idea why. o.o' Now I look creepier than you. xD
