Peering into eyes of fire
I see anger and hunger
defiant like no other burning
hatefully like lava inside bellies
of furious volcanoes
And the fact that every man
Or woman in their existence
will one day or plenty more
days endure the bites from this
ferocious beast
I am compelled to advise you
to brace yourselves therefore
for this fire burns even for you
only time will tell your turn
But I know it is soon!
