They Are Like Wolves

  

          
           They obey like wolves
           In the pack they run
           To take down the prey
           To satisfy the hunger

           Hunger which grows
           As they wait in the shadows
           Stalking and crawling
           On the boundaries of plain

           Making the hunt
           More of a joke
           For the prey knows
           The wolves are there

           The observers notice
           The prey is weak and sick
           How the wolves take advantage
           Not knowing the difference

          
           Thousands lined up
           All in a row
           Not questioning why
           Not asking the meaning
          
           They run with the pack
           Taking out the innocent
           Feeding on the weak
           Murders in the dark.
