Prey Tell The feeble rays of fading light Through canopy are banned from sight. And they that slither, crawl and prowl Emerge from lairs with hungry jowl. Your sweaty stench and liquid heat Conspire to your stealth defeat. Relentlessly your life they stalk No matter where you climb or walk. From "lower species," earn respect By flaunting your vast intellect? But to nocturnals, you are just The latest meal for which they lust. Rejoice in passage of the day? How foolish when you are the prey!
