Once upon a time there was a lady of no repute,
One Miss Crow, who, by force of a certain stranger,

an aberration of desperation, a horror in all but name,

He was to work all the hours his sorry god sent,
a resident of fantasy, living a life of lament.
He was to have no living lovers, no-one on who to depend.
Yet his friends were to call him Carrion,
the friends inside his head...
