      "Free as a Bird" (A Ray Lewis Poem)
      by Alexander Camp

      You weren't born a bird, but you were born to be great,
      to bring hurricanes to the bright sunshine state,
      and quickly move on to the brightest of stage
      to write your own fable, to fulfill your fate

      so they praised you for plays in the depths of december,
      as you guided your flock back south for warmer weather,
      they called you their king, bound by the purple forever,
      but I see a heart, black as raven's feathers.

      For you fought and you battled, to achieve your main goal,
      You silenced your scoffers, you won the big war
      but in the war of the streets, 2 lives were the score
      and though you gained the trophy, you gave up your soul

      so caged by your actions, with no chance to flee,
      you escaped from your bindings, and now you fly free,
      you fool a whole nation with gospel from your beak,
      but all that I hear is a crow's guilty plea.

      you now roam the skies as an acquitted felon,
      and devour your prey with your ring in your talons,
      demanding the world call you a model and legend
      so they may forget your lies and your past sins.

      who am I to judge, just a bolstering critic,
      they say it's half of the story, that I'm being a cynic
      that it's all just a ploy or a self-serving gimmick,
      that it's not how you start, but more how you finish

      and it's true I can't judge, for I'm no judge or juror
      but in the court of the People, I'll take it one further,
      cause Lord knows I've been watching, and so is said by the birder,
      "when your company is crows, it's nothing but murder."

      - I was going to just put this in the post, but I can't edit it for some reason. Anyway, there's the poem dudes!
