Rogue

The 2:00 AM fevered dream

Master’s tug at the leash

I am an old lion

mane ragged and grizzled

The pride ignores me

While young bulls stake

mark the ground with their acids

Caustic agents

Seeking battle

where none is offered

Have as you like

Too tired for a long fight

I would slay them

or wander

to die alone
