Run
thats the last thing you'll hear before you hear shots behind you
echoing, bouncing off the trees
when you stop (if you stop)
don't forget to hide
and do remember,
breathe

Don't hide too long though,
or the Hunter
or his Dog
WILL find you,
and then you'll lose the game,
the Most Dangerous Game
It will all be over
but do remember,
breathe

Luckily, your insincts are sharp
the Dog goes down,
and then his Master
congrats, you've won the game,
The Most Dangerous Game
Now all you have to do
is escape the Island.
But thats another adventure
for another day.
Soin the meantime just
Breathe

I love this. The Most Dangerous Game is really creepy and panicky, and I love how you incorporated that into the poem. It was great!

Thanks! Many people have felt that same way. There have been several different adaptations of the Most Dangerous Game- as a one act in the theatre (both modernized and exclusevely based off of the story) Its been made as a film several times. A friend of mine wrote a whole paper about it. If you read the "Most Dangerous Game", and like it, you might also like "The Tell Tale Heart" by Edgar Allen Poe, or "The Lady or the Tiger" by someone else (as you can tell, I'm not that good with names). You might also like "The Monkey's Paw" which is also by Edgar Allen Poe (I think)

Nice job! The Most Dangerous Game is such a cool story, and so disturbing, and you did a good job capturing that.
