Here comes an ungainly raven
Escaped from a Gorey painting
To check out the picnic basket
Of the tourists from Calgary.
The tourists are paddle boarding
On the bay of the shining lake,
One of them tall and statuesque,
One struggling to stand in one place.
If you were a storyteller,
You’d swear a story’s here somewhere,
And you’d probably be on it.
This raven’s not that competent.
