Prompt: "... the diamond bright dawn woke men and crows..."
Source: Kim by Rudyard Kipling
The diamond bright dawn woke men and crows, and the crows came to dine on the men who did not wake and in some cases, the crows, in this manner, woke men who might otherwise never have woken.
One such man, after chasing off the death birds that had teased him away from his seductive dreams of food and warmth and rest, adjusted a bandage on the stump of his shortened left arm, and stood to survey his position in the morning light. He knew none of the men or corpses that he saw, but the crows looked familiar.
