WE ARE VULTURES

When the storms roar
And the rains set in
You will hear the vultures say
“After the rains, we’ll build our huts”

II
When the rains do wane
And the sky smiles
You’ll hear the vultures say
“We need no structure
To tame our wings
The best is flying without opening gates”

III
We are like vultures
Aren’t we?

Dressed in doomy black

With white mufflers
Always mourning disasters
Don’t we?
And giving sluggishness a duster
To dust horribles when time’s sound travels a mile
Don’t we?
Appalling, our artificial fate
A bombing shame on our skinny brains
