Art and the philosophy of life

Mr. Poe and...

Mr. Poe & his Raven

Mr. Poe
was quiet distressed
even though
he did his best
he never could
get any rest
the bird
was just
relentless

the raven
cawed both
day and night
gave all the neighbors
quite a fright
but didn’t
care for them
at all
the bird
enjoyed
relentless

Mrs. Poe
spoke
very slow
she said the bird
would have to go
but Poe stood strong
and said oh no
he can’t help
he’s
relentless

I love the raven
he’s my friend
I’m sticking by him
till the end
on this one issue
I won’t bend
it’s okay
he’s
relentless

now leave me woman
I must write
before the dawn
bursts forth with light
the bird won’t let me
sleep tonight
because
he’s
so
relentless

the raven looked
at Poe and said
what’s going on
inside your head
I’m sitting here
within your view
don’t you know
what you should do
it’s not that
I don’t care for you
it’s just that
I’m
relentless

I’m tired raven
can’t you see
THIS is what YOU
do to me
you never stop
you always caw
you truly
are
relentless

Poe got up
reached for the door
the raven dropped
down to the floor
you love me
just the way I am
you know you
like
relentless

goodnight my friend
my body’s sore
I’m sorry that
I’m such a bore
I’m off to bed
to get some sleep
please
don’t
be
relentless

the raven stopped
and shook his head
yes do go on
it’s off to bed
but sleep
won’t come
for you
old friend
because
my
name’s
Relentless
