Singleton M. Tate


Brutally Honest


Speak of what>>> nothingness
Apocalyptic words that rain
Typing fierce>>> lion
Clawing at my brain

Alligators born to>>> prowl
Sensing food is near
Tearing growl>>> frozen
All things once held dear

Prideful abience>>> reveal
Boney flesh cut limbs
Brutally Honest>>> invader
Sharing average whims

    Oh wow...i never read a national geographic documentary in verse... that's what it is...
    graphic raw and powerful...touching and gripping....
    dramatic mosaic of canine power applied to life in the concrete jungle

    nice
