Thanks Sparks.

As Indar did a Thomas Hardy I feel obliged to do a Poe.

Crow is close enough isn't it----poetic license and all?

Poe it is then.

The Vulture

Once whilst in a tea shoppe dreary
     thinking long on cheese scone theory
and eating quaint and curious cakes
     just like the ones my mamma makes
I smiled at rap-tap-tapping Peg
     the waitress with the wooden leg.

Peg smiled right back a knowing grin
     and spittle glistened on her chin.
She was indeed an ugly lass
    and rumours spake of excess gas
with fondness for a cabbage tart
     resulting in a tell-tale fart.

Sorry but, inevitably,  it could only end that way.

Ozzie Mandibles

I met a traveller from suburban land
Who said:  vast and cavernous buffets of stone
Stand side by side on restaurant row. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and smear of cold compote
Tell that here lies a man whose passions led
( yet he survives), to an amazing feat
Two handed gorging despite the mocking crowds
And on a paper napkin these words appear:
"My name is Ozzy Mandibles, king of steam tables
Look on my works, ye picky eaters, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level housing tracts stretch far away

Perserved N. Ice Shellfish
