Sharpen the Spears

Sharpen the spears,

the hunt has begun,

search the tree tops

for the prey,

swinging tree to tree,

the jungle is alive,

appetites are fierce,

calling to themselves

archaic chants,

beat the chests,

find the prey,

back them into their burrows,

stab them into chunks of meat,

do not share, it is mine, my prey,

I am dominant, archaic chants,

competition, is the way of things,

the jungle is the battleground,

my friends are your foes,

I am the alpha male.
