Crippled Predator

 
A hungry wolf
Afraid to kill rabbits

So you know he ain't going after a deer

Self-imposed sentence of solitude
Without a pack
elk and moose have nothing to fear

Waiting...
Hungrily
Wishing...
and Sorely Lacking

Not in fang nor strength
But confidence,
ferocity

Even the hawk and owl, who rabbits fear,
will not challenge him

They laugh at him

but safely
from a distance

Just in case he remembers
what he really is




"In the abundance of water,
the fool is thirsty" ---- Bob Marley "Rat Race"
