Crow’s Theology by Ted Hughes …

What it should be …

Crow realised God loved him — Otherwise, he would have dropped dead.

Visitation2013 059So that was proved.  Crow reclined, marvelling, on his heart-beat.

And he realised that God spoke Crow — Just existing was His revelation.

But what … Loved the stones and spoke stone?

Visitation2013 061They seemed to exist too.

Visitation2013 062And what spoke that strange silence …

Visitation2013 063After his clamour of Caws faded?

Visitation2013 065And what loved the shot pellets …

That dribbled from those strung up mummyfing crows?

What spoke the silence of lead?

Crow realised there were two Gods  —  One of them much bigger than the other …

Loving his enemies …

And having all the weapons.

Please put your rubbish in a bin.
