Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day         Leslie Monk

Be a crow?

by  Saramo 22 June 2014

I found myself standing in the queue as I do on a Friday in the M&S cafe. The girl behind the counter knew what I wanted before I did.

"Double espresso. Got it." she anticipated.

She looked different. She was smiling.

"What's up?... You're happy today" I said.

"I'm leaving" she said.

"Where yer going?" I said.

"The Tower of London", she smiled.

"What yer going do there? Be a crow?"

She didn't get it but the girl behind the girl behind the counter got it, and laughed.

"Did you hear that ?" she said.

An old beak behind me interfered. "There aren't any crows at the Tower of London.  They are ravens."

In due course I made my way back to the car and alongside me I noticed beaky make his way to his Ford parked in a disabled bay.

I stared at him sideways.

"Double Espresso. Got it."

Black Crow

by Joni Mitchell

There's a crow flying
Black and ragged
Tree to tree
He's black as the highway that's leading me
Now he's diving down
To pick up on something shiny
I feel like that black crow
Flying
In a blue sky

I took a ferry to the highway
Then I drove to a pontoon plane
I took a plane to a taxi
And a taxi to a train
I've been traveling so long
How'm I ever going to know my home
When I see it again
I'm like a black crow flying
In a blue blue sky

In search of love and music
My whole life has been
Illumination
Corruption
And diving diving diving diving
Diving down to pick up on every shiny thing
Just like that black crow flying
In a blue sky

I looked at the morning
After being up all night
I looked at my haggard face in the bathroom light
I looked out the window
And I saw that ragged soul take flight
I saw a back crow flying
In a blue sky
Oh I'm like a black crow flying
In a blue sky
