“Will anything Man does ever make sense?
we were squatters
but in the land of ritual and tradition
the king was told
rid yourself of ravens
and the monarchy turns to dust
from then on
men in weird orange uniforms
fed us and kept us safe
making us happy to linger

until World War II
bombs and we flew away fast
which infuriated Winston Churchill
who ordered the army
to capture six ravens
clip our wings
making sure we stuck around
to rescue king and country.”
