Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places


In this jungle
where love hides deep
camouflaged from scrutiny
and preferring to sleep
Harmony is rationed
for all but a lucky few
Kill or be killed
in a game for only two
 
Beware the predators
Stalking their prey
Like lambs to the slaughter
and so easy to sway
Sliding down
a slippery slope
Know that in the end
There is always hope
