Eagles Don't Fly With Crows



My mom always told us that Eagles don't fly with crows.


The logic is simple; kind of like when you lay down with dirty dogs you get fleas. The power of this statement rings true today more than ever. Eagles who fly with crows for longer than they should, will pay for it for a long time to come.


Because Eagles don't fly with crows.


A crow is, after all, a crow. Slick, black, loud and menacing. Always squawking for attention, and can be a cunning companion. The trickster at the carnival, the candy man in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (remember him?) Intriguing and alluring, but dangerous. The strong believe in their fortitude, never forgetting who they are but they are curious.


Eagles don't fly with crows.


The crow is the master of deviance, preying on the Eagle's principles and hiding inside the Eagle's shield of respect. Waiting in the darkness, creating havoc behind the hope of daylight. The Eagle is the moral compass by which flying creatures gage, the crow can only pretend until the jig is up.


Because Eagles don't fly with crows.


The crow is angry because he has been revealed for who he really is. Not an Eagle, but a crow and he is desperate to make things different, fool a new bunch of Eagles, but they know he will never be anything but a crow. And he is tangled in his webs of deception, the dirt of deceit, caked on his black coat.


Yes, Eagles don't fly with crows.


The Eagle is now free to soar and roam the world with opportunities endless, it's contributions valued by other Eagles, it's young safe and strong. The Eagle is content in the mountians and plains of it's habitat. It flies where it belongs, with the other Eagles.

The crow can only watch from a distance.

So, just to clarify, Eagles don't fly with crows then?

I think I fall in the category of "Crow".

Pearl said...

Chris sent me.

He said if I mentioned his name there would be some sort of prize involved.

OK. No, he didn't really say that. I just kinda assumed.

:-)

Like your blog! I'll be back!

But crows look badass dressed all in black.

And a flock of eagles is called an aerie or a convocation. Pretty cool.

But a flock of crows is called a murder.

Crows are badass!

Furtheron said...

I'd like to come back as a bird... an eagle over a crow possibly...

Just Jules said...

I love this idea - good one for kids to think on (and some adults I know:)

The Dental Maven said...

What about the Whipporwill? Who's he allowed to consort with? Cause, I don't care what you say, that's a COOL NAME.

Chris said...

Hi Pearl! Glad you took my advice. Candy's pretty hip. Definitely an Eagle. Don't know if I'm an eagle myself, but I do know that people give me the bird a lot so maybe that counts.

Cora said...

Ooooooh, I like this, Candy. I know EXACTLY what you mean.

Ahhhhhhh.... It's like a breath of fresh air being away from the damn crows, isn't it? :-)

Dr Zibbs said...

I'm still like hawks better than eagles.

TROLL Y2K said...

I can see eagles at my home, church, and club! At least 4 young-uns among them.

First time delurker here. I love this post. Way better than “if your friend would jump off a cliff, would you do it too?!”

Real Live Lesbian said...

I love this.

Pop and Ice said...

Who is the eagle and the crow in this story? I demand to know! Or are you just incorporating ad hoc nature lessons?

Prunella Jones said...

Does a Raven count as a Crow? Because I really like that "Nevermore" poem.

BamaTrav said...

So does that mean that cows sleep with horses?

the iNDefatigable mjenks said...

So...eagles are a bunch of racists.

SkylersDad said...

I am more of a Falcon kind of guy, I look pretty hot in those hoods...

R.o.c.k.e.t.D.o.g said...

I shall pass this on to someone i know who fall in the category of 'Crow'...i love it!

mike said...

I may or may not be an eagle, but I have flown with crows far too often. I think your advice should be that Eagles should try to avoid flying with crows whenever possible.

Unless I'm missing the analogy. In that case, go Boston College!

Fancy Schmancy said...

Thank goodness this post was many hours after my new one. Otherwise, I would have become paranoid. Even more so than usual.

Whatever it is, sweetie, you are so much more than that.

Prunella Jones said...

I just remembered the best quote from the movie Heathers:

"Real life sucks losers dry, if you want to fuck with the eagles you gotta learn to fly."

I'm totally going to tell my future kids that.

Scope said...

Is this a football thing between Philadelphia and Baltimore? I thought you were a Patriots fan.

But yeah, the Ravens suck.

Or am I confused here?

~E said...

So what you're saying then is, crows are black?

(turns to hear buddy tell her something)

OH! Eagles don't fly with crows! Got it!

mo.stoneskin said...

Great post. I hate crows.

There are many reasons why I don't lie with dirty dogs and now I have another!

Always Home and Uncool said...

Where would red-tail hawks fit into this?

Sent by Sass ... she was right, as always.

Mejis said...

I get it. Love it!
By the way, Sass sent me. ;)

LivingDeadNurse said...

Love it and sass sent me!
