Lure The Wolf - Poem by Jacob Courtney

Lure the Wolf

Come out of hiding you creature show
Yourself to me for I know you are here
I know you stand within this field today.
You lurk throughout the herd hiding under
A slain sheeps skin. Why even come why
I ask you. Is it fear that motivates you
On this day or is it the blood of a lamb
That draws you near. On yes it must
Be great to hide here and now praising
The very Shepard you stand against stealing
His sheep one by one with your false promises
Of food of a shelter that will last forever.
Yes I see you for The Shepard showed me
who You are he showed me your teeth for
your Drool can be seen like a trail. Your
paws leave a very different trail from
Those of sheep. What's wrong wolf are
You surprised that we all saw you that even
Those you lured away returned when they
Saw the very thing you are. That stolen
Wool can not mask your scent from a
Well trained Shepard for he saw you when
You first put it on even when you thought
He could not. You forget my dear wolf my
Shepard sees all, hears all, feels all, and
Knows all. Be gone wolf darken our field
No more for your not wanted here anymore.
