Lament of the Caveman
Waiting in the brush, a meal within steps,
but clumsy is as clumsy does
and a rustle alerts the buck,
ears twitch in attention and hooves
strike a path to escape.
A chase between caveman and survival
leads both man and animal
into a valley, into the shadows
of dusk and soon night.
The caveman’s ears twitch
as he senses threat and
knows he’ll soon be the prey.
He abandons his hunger and returns
to his cave—the coals now cold.
