  • “Hear ye, hear ye
    Russel T. Crow residing,
    All Rise.”

    And they did.
    All 75 of them.
    Swarming crows.
    Renegades from
    Alfred Hitchcock's movie,
    The Birds.

    Circling above my house,
    cawing and barking.
    Socialized chaos.
    Mass protest.
    Angry mob scene
    of unmeasurable proportions.

    My husband calls up the stairs,
    “Holy cow, what are they
    crying about.
    Never heard such a ruckus.
    What did you do to them?”

    Russel T. Crow says,
    “You may be seated.”
    And they were.
