He sits so straight, with that blank stare
Does he not know? Does he not scare?
Can he not sense the danger so near?
Is he so brave that he feels no fear?
He makes no attempt to get away.
I'm certain he'll be easy prey.
I pounce. I have him. I bite off an ear!
The first chocolate victim of Easter this year.
