He's patiently furtive
whisking invisible against camouflaged wild
he waits for the vulnerable opportunity
to steal unattended futurity.

He craves the luke-warm satisfaction
only a young, pulsating jugular
fresh with live blood can give him.

He lurks in the night's shadows
stalking his prey with heinous precision
his hunger growling its desperation to survive.

The unmolested silence is broken
by his hysterical screams of carnivorous passion
as he devours his game in a flesh eating frenzy.

Unsatisfied by his insatiable appetite
he follows another death scented trail
leading to the alpha females whose offspring he just ate
and cowardly scavenges upon their available scraps.
