Black Birds of Death

By LivingEternally, Keeseville, NY

A dark shadow loomed over the city
An enormous raven as a messenger of death
It swooped down on its target without any mercy
The attacker meant for nothing to be left

On impact, the beast deteriorated into dust
After that, the fire began to spread
It grew and burned with malevolent bloodlust
The flames swallowed both alive and dead

Many tried to flee from the frightful blaze
Others knew that there was no hope
Were they in their right mind or a fear-struck daze?
It was obvious that there was no time to cope

There came another raven
It was like a missile from the sky

Wow, this is most definitely my favorite.  I love this poem so much.  Definitley inspires me lol. Although, that was the saddest day ever.
