I am the hunter
not the game.
I own the lonely path
which leads to my hearth
and shall defend it.
The signs are posted
and whosoever dismisses
deserves their fate.

Who creeps through the shadows,
peers from the bushes
before and forever
smelling of fear
and living putrescence
wanders my path
at their peril.

My knife is sharp
honed on the tongue
of the dragon at dawn
Hand calm,steady,
I wait in silence
without hunger.

Oh yes,I know the game..
moved by habit and sloth
thinking to be hidden
behind mask and camouflage
minds squawking mindlessly
stumbling blindly,eyes closed
in search of the light...
every invasive irritating breath
rasping 'misunderstood!'
A precious moment wasted
upon such as these?

I wait in silence
without hunger.
..yet still I wonder
how shall the blow be dealt?
with calculated slowness?
or quickly in compassion?
Would you be game?
perhaps,
..not here.
Not I,
..here.
