Tale of a Deer

I escaped the terrifying forest

Leaving behind ferocious predators

And loving mates

To come to this lush green city

Full of life and vegetation


And what do I behold?

But predators in sophisticated attire

Lusting my skin

And desiring my meat

And I see the meat of fellow animals

Hanging in butcher shops

So out of shape

That I am unable to identify them

I have a tiny heart that beats, too

And I decide to go back to the forest

Live with my friends

And confront my predictable enemies
