Animal Instincts

Animal Instincts

Your presence noticeable
With looks and charm
Engaging those around you, but,
you know that I know who you really are

Ignoring my icy stare you laugh
maybe just a little too loud
so I might hear you having a good time
But that is wasted on me

Sly as a fox and twice as cunning
Strategic in circling your prey
You will likely ensnare an unsuspecting hen
from the coop this night

Your antics are predictable
And yes, my view of you is negative
To me you are, and always will be,
just a big, fat zero
