When the Ravens Grieve

Since our dawn, they've been our companions
They watched us fall, they witnessed our victories
Without judgment, simply curious
Without impatience, they've seen it all
And when they grieve we should notice
They are impossible to surprise
They know our flaws
They've a wealth of experience to draw upon
They grieve for the approaching storms
When human-kind
Answers Armageddon's call
Far too soon
Out of time
With ample warning
