Poem: Prey 

Once upon an ordinary morning,
she kills again.
The rabbit screams,
and within seconds
the torn form dangles
from her powerful mouth.
The best dog in the world
unwillingly drops her prey.
It's a battle as I drag her away.
I return to the crime scene.
This bunny does not go gently.
With guts exposed,
it moves for the last time.

Speaking of...
