Preying Mantis - Poem by Juan Olivarez

He says a prayer,
Before he dines.
And nothing dares,
To be inclined,
To come near those,
Hands held high.
They all are staying,
Away here's why.
Those preying hands,
Will strike so quick,
Yes they will,
In a heart beat.
The Preying Mantis,
The deadly one,
One small caress,
And the deal is done.
