Like a sniffing animal attracted

By the scent of youthfulness

Out of place amongst the young

Circling your pray waiting to devour

No one bats an eye at the loss of

Innocence for long has been missing

That willingness to interfere

Like the vulture spying from above

You circle and do not lose sight

Of your intended pray

Tallness at the ready ready to shred

Through young flesh not hardened to

The realities of life and the challenges

Which often lay ahead

Like the darkness of the night you

Slowly creep forever inward infecting

The light with your absence of shadow

Another victim fallen to the forgotten

For none know your name or live to

Tell the tale

Like a sniffing animal attracted

To youthfulness your age and stench

Have drowned out the cries of despair

As another is entwined into your

Lost consuming mind which see no

Wrong in praying on the young weak

Or old for you have survived an milliard

On your depravities

Like a sniffing animal attracted

You are the end of innocence
