(In the minor sense) I don't care
Do you care? (In the major sense)
This (all caps) truly means nothing
beyond what some stuffed scarecrow says it means

When I live outside the crows call me
I am a friend to the crow
Others have told me
It is creepy that the crow is
one of my favorite birds.
Creepy like death?
Creepy why?

I love the crows.
As opportunists they utilize everything we cringe.
Detritus, effluent.
As opportunists, they prey on everything
Including opportunists with their guard let down.

Stupid opportunists
If you're going to be a social predator
A capitalist opportunist
You best be prepared to have your carcass --
dead or half alive --
fed upon at will.
