A poem about prey
Under the pale ghostly glow of the moonlight

Sitting in the sky at their max height

Night predators display their true might

The hunger they feel enough to incite

The dark feral look that shines so bright

Eyes completely alight

Scanning for prey until the sun's first light

The thrill of the hunt bringing pure utter delight

While prey desperately hide frozen in utter fright

Huddled together nice and tight

Knowing they can neither run nor fight

Their chances of winning only slight

Against those who are the predators of the night

Their sharp teeth always ready to bite

Never pausing to hear a prey's plight

Only the lucky ones will make it until the first rays of twilight

Just a side note, this was a mythology poem for a certain hunting mythology animal I made for school. It describes a predator prey relationship basically. (Kind of a rushed piece that I didn't really spend much time on besides a few quick edits).
