Jaguar – Claw and Fang

Claw and Fang

The jungle held deep secrets
From emptiness they rang
Hidden in the shadows, yet,
one came as claw and fang

It blended into nowhere
It moved with stealth and grace
Its orbs set forth a death stare
and safety found no place

The jungle held deep secrets
It whispered them so soft
So when they came to be, yet,
too late it seemed so oft
