The Crow Knows

The shortest distance between two points,
Is a straight, unwavering line…
A theory related to travel,
Can now be applied to time.

I frequently moved in my early years,
Avoiding commitments and family ties…
Finding the one time I settled down,
Trapped and aging; now time flies.

The crows leave this place in the winter,
Zigzagging south again, to warm weather…
Reminding me of my dismal straight line, 
Dropping one mocking black wing feather.
