    He also wrote a superb, bleak and in places, darkly comic, series of poems under the overall title “Crow”.
    I did them for ‘A’ level may moons ago. They were brilliant!
    Have one, with my compliments.
    Crow Blacker Than Ever
    By Ted Hughes
    When God, disgusted with man,
    Turned towards heaven,
    And man, disgusted with God,
    Turned towards Eve,
    Things looked like falling apart.
    But Crow Crow
    Crow nailed them together,
    Nailing heaven and earth together-
    So man cried, but with God’s voice.
    And God bled, but with man’s blood.
    Then heaven and earth creaked at the joint
    Which became gangrenous and stank-
    A horror beyond redemption.
    The agony did not diminish.
    Man could not be man nor God God.
    The agony
    Grew.
    Crow
    Grinned
    Crying: “This is my Creation,” Flying the black flag of himself.

    Dear Marg,
    All you really need to know about Ted Highes is that most of his poetic attempts at ‘British surrealism’ stunk to high heaven.
    By the by, Lost ears, C-Dog is winning the game today – “Ode Kill” is the best play on words I’ve seen in some time.
    Well played, cunning mid-sized predator!
