hunt (iron spine recommended)

run with the wind

when this hunt is over
the new one begins

adults form a circle-
surround the children

put their lives
on the line
for their next of kin

only prize
in their eyes
is for their blood to live

first bite hurts-
but it don’t draw no blood

second bite
is like fire-
hind leg goes numb

tumble in the dust
vertebrae busts

ribs get sliced
out spill the guts

predators come alive
from the blood lust

in the wild-
killers thrive
when the heart pumps-

through lines
where the blood runs

it’s only a crime
when it’s done for fun

survivals only real
to the last one–standing

life runs by the minute
long terms not granted

iron spine recommended
