Move hastily any and all who dare
Swim in the deeper darker waters
To leave no trace and make no sound
Guarantees not your safe passage
Arrogance and egotism splash wildly
As retribution breathes deep far below
A silent yet stealthy killing machine
Firmly dialed into it’s predatory pattern
Make no mistake regarding who belongs
This possessor of such powerful elegance
Perilous adjudicator of unpredictable force
Shall enforce it’s rule swiftly and silently
Return to the land from where you began
Not so long ago as to know timeless survival
Look upon these scars earned throughout aeons
An infinity of war stories told upon leathery skin
The safety brought about by man’s sheer ignorance
Does not exist beyond the buoys of private beaches
I warn you to speedily make your way to shore
Or realize the metallic taste of territorial justice
Great to see you back. Hope it is permanent. 🙂 loved the writing as always.
Thanks Sammiegyrl. It is good to BE back. Been adrift in shark infested waters lately. Back on solid ground for now.
If you have the “shark proof” mesh thingy that could be fun. LOL but at the same time solid ground is a good thing too.
Great Whites just sharpen their teeth on chainmaille so I am gonna stick to the jungle where I belong. Much respect to my Oceanic equivalent though. Let this be a warning to the self entitled arrogant ones who tread where they do not belong. On land or at sea.
Lions are one thing… sharks, another thing. 😉
