Raven - Poem by Sumpter Carter

I saw a raven perched
Upon the window sill
Through the dead it searched
The world around is still.

At the eyes it pecked
The nose, the mouth, the chest,
And in between it necked
Whilst eying the rest.

When looking through the glass
I saw the battlefield below
The raven off his fast
It is horror I now know.

Men, women, young and old,
All the same in death
All are rigid and cold
And unable to draw breath.

This is the story of life
Of all humanity
A world without life
A war has made it be.
