Raven Redux

by Parker Nash

LONELY DUDE about to snore
Hears a knock upon his door
What is there? A talking bird!
All it knows is one damn word

Conversation is a bore
All it says is “nevermore”
Asks about his long lost flame
Lenore, the lovely lady’s name

Bird provides no help at all
“Nevermore,” its single call
Lonely dude goes raving mad
Bird just sits there. Bird is bad.
