Bird of Prey

Raptor’s eyes glint
And the plan is forming.
Raw intelligence,
Pure unbridled power from the dawn of time
Will soon be storming.

Raptor’s wings spread
Eddying up on the silence.
Potent speed,
A flash of the talons that seal the crime
Natural in its violence.

Raptor’s beak tears
The flesh fragment by fragment,
Brutal force.
Fluffy chicks replete, drowsy at bedtime.
Prey slain with detachment.

Raptor’s feathers
Cover the babes for protection.
Perfect sentry,
On duty all night and alert all the daytime
The art of natural selection.
