A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Your facade looks so harmless;
soft wool meant to placate
and keep us at ease.

But I know who you are
beneath layers of pretense,
a predator to the core.

Your snarl is discernible
even though you bleat
of your helplessness.

And when you pounce,
I will be prepared to
fight back against you.
