PC Called

PC Called.  He Said the King is Naked

The raven, black as night,
rising within her mortal flight
to reach most unholy heights….
And we, as fools, shudder in fright
upon her shivery sight……

T’ was you?  T’ was I? In a most decisive way….
Defining moments, locking words away.
For never an ear, nor the light of day
should pass lest these passions say:
I fear thee…….
Yet, come what may…….

    I love this John, you know I have a soft spot for Ravens and Crows…… may be he was the unlucky familiar of that stroppy Vampire witch I wrote about the other day?? 😉 xxxx

      Hi Miss Willow, yes, the raven is certainly a versatile little bird… He gets a pretty bad rap though…. After his escapades of poking the eyes out of that reporter in the movie about Damien, I mean, what would one expect? He’s definitely a creepy little plucker…. So I don’t have any reserves about using him as the focal point of the most evil thing a I can imagine: Political correctness – (a tool used to control thought on a huge, societal scale.) Yes, it’s used sometimes for admirable things, like enabling perfectly innocent people like gays to enjoy the respect that all humans deserve. But it was also used by Hitler and his henchman to eradicate an entire race of God fearing, loving people. Just because they were different. It is a double edged sword that should be kept in its sheath……

    Makes me think a little bit of Edgar Allen Poe. I especially like the last line. Yes – come what may!!
