Dying Beast Poem by Langston Hughes

Dying Beast

Rating: 4.7


Sensing death,
The buzzards gather —
Noting the last struggle
Of flesh under weather,
Noting the last glance
Of agonized eye
At passing wind
And boundless sky.

The prey and the preying bird. The food and the hungry. Death and the agony. Great piece, message, metaphor and allegory
