The Marksman


They say that, that one
is a notorious marksman
he hits, he runs
in this land, no man's
his arrows invisible
his damage terrible
he has wounded so many deers
now I happen to witness
as he aims at a deer
and am left in dilemma.
Do I warn this deer?
No.
Yes I will,
he must shoot sharks
not dear deers
