“O’ what morsels?”

O’ What Morsels? by Equanimous Rex 

Something I made the other day, inspired by a scene in Episode Three of The Witch-Doctor, in which Artemis encounters a flock of ravens and recalls a nursery rhyme her father used to sing to her.

“The ravens they call, they squawk and shriek

O’ what morsels and O’ what treats?

 The crows they caw, they bark, they scream

When will they get to wet their beak?

 The magpies hem, they haw, they sneak

 The blood is shiny, the blood must leak

   Ho Hum! Ho Hum!

               Squawk! Squawk! Squawk!

 The sun is fair, the time is right

 They’ll have full bellies before the night!”

(I never claimed to be a poet.)
