Carl the Crow
by Jean Monce Bryant

Oh Carl the Crow- what a cute funny guy
He exited the nest when not able to fly
His parents are nearby-they're armed and they're ready
So predators BEWARE--their surveillance is steady

They feed Carl often--his demands will not quit
He'll squawk and he'll CAW till he gets every bit
As Providers and Security there's no time to sleep
They'll answer each call--even one tiny peep

With hawks, owls and raccoons and eagles as well
The dangers are many--I think you can tell
And neighborhood cats also can pose a threat
The parents relax???No, no time for that yet

If baby, though noisy, can hide from their view
His chance for survival's much better it's true
If one of his siblings has left the nest too
The parents' duties are doubled--for them I'll say "WHEW"

But any good parent--though tired and worn-out
Will come Wide-Awake at a peep or a shout
So thank you for babies--and parents as well
Their love and devotion it truly is swell

Carl will be growing his tail feathers soon
And then he can fly and head straight for the moon
He's patiently waiting for them to arrive
With rudders on board--he can fly and survive
