Tell me how the crow flies

So lazily across the skies,

Tell me how the crow flies

Unhindered by his grave demise,

Tell me how the crow flies

Glistening obsidian in my eyes.

Tell me why the wolf howls

Desperate hunger for midnight prowls,

Tell me why the wolf howls

Spilling blood and meat-covered jowls,

Tell me why the wolf howls

Moons upon moons running out of fouls.

Tell me why the men kill

Listening for a midnight trill,

Tell me why the men kill

Unearthly screams of joy and thrill,

Tell me why the men kill

Eyes of danger and hands that will.
