#Poem two crows

The two crows of Crownhill Fort
can’t be told one from the other
so you must tie a yellow ribbon round an old crow’s leg
either bird will do

To catch a crow, though,
is not easy
and once they spot you
looking
plotting
they keep a safe distance

However, you can hex them
with a clarinet
a melody
sweet
hypnotic
a beaky crow lullaby

Sleep little crow
Rest your head
Lie you down
Be you not as you are
so cautious
