Brutality is a bear.
Raging for food
Without thought or reason

A lone smell,
a quiet snap,
the body responds
Before strategic thoughts
can develop
in the skull…

A path of destruction
and terror,
is all that’s left
in his wake.

Arriving at the lone smell,
he begins his taking.
With all frightened
there is nothing
to stop him

Brutality is a bear.
With a full gut,
and a dirty paw.
