Savages

I live between a savage group of humans
Each determined to slit opposing throats
Snarling at their back when out of sight
Drooling over small invitations of attack
Though they attempt to suppress,
They can never hide their instincts
Turning raw at the minutest smell of blood
Their eyes gleam yellow
Breathe runs ragged
I can detect saliva
Dripping in anticipation
Claws jut out as the first growl resounds
They bare their fangs, ready to strike
Rounding up on their prey
Stalking the target, sensing the kill
The growls turn into human cackles
They say words of scorn and take a leap
The fangs sink in, drawing deep gashes
They drink and feast on their own blood n meat
And the animals of the jungle smirk and take a back seat !

About Hamza

A freebird at heart, I believe I am past the age where I can describe myself. I mean, haven’t we seen enough rape of the most commonly used adjectives ? Unless I find something different to describe myself, freebird should do it !

  1. BRILLIANT. BRILLIANT!

    The humans of today, so well-described.
    Especially at the end:

    ”They drink and feast on their own blood n meat

    And the animals of the jungle smirk and take a back seat !”

  2. Yes I like the last 2 lines as well … the fine line differentiating us and animals has been wiped out. Animals do not need to do this. They must really be laughing at us, the chosen Ashraful Makhlooqaat.

    Thank you 🙂
