How silently

How silently they cast their lies–

The deadly bait awaits

The unsuspecting little bites

Nibbling at their fates.

How carefully they set their sights –

Finger poised to shoot

Just above the little calf

Its mother rendered mute.

How joyfully they come and go

All smiles and platitudes

They punctuate their carefree lives

With deadly interludes.
