The Deer and the Wolves

IMG_2896

You’re a batsman, like a deer

Isolated from the herd

Fielders, like a pack of wolves

Lick their lips at your wounds

Bowler, the alpha male

On the prowl, a scowl

Staring you down

The wolves, patient

Eyes on their prey

In pursuit, the whole day

No escape

They will get you

Termination

A matter of time

A fellow deer

Picked off by the pack

Another one dissected

Sent back

Witness your fellow fallows fall

Stave off uncertain certainty

Cries, you’re down

Weapons on the ground

The wolves howl

The battle at a close
