Poetry Night Two! - The Twa Corbies

This week, I decided to do a traditional favorite, "The Twa Corbies." I had to tweak the text a little to keep it from coming out too sing song-y, since it is traditional song as a ballad.

I lifted the text from here.

A long while back, I heard a rewritten version of this on Podcastle, one of the podcasts from Escape Artists. The story was also called "The Twa Corbies" by Marie Brennan and read by Elie Hirshman. By the way, Escape Pod needs money, and I'm broke, so give them money! They do some great stuff for Genre Fiction and exposing new voices in Science Fiction and Fantasy.
