The Dark Shadow

The Dark Shadow

The gas-light flickered in the breeze one night;

A dark shadow shifts silently waiting;

Just one glimpse of him would be your last sight

The predator the hunter is feeding.

The poverty-stricken streets provide life

And the loss of a few would not be missed;

In this time of hunger, hardship and strife

The reports of missing would be dismissed.

So he waits in the shadows for a stray;

Someone out on their own in the darkness;

Just dispatch them without any delay

Quick, bloodless and no pain and no witness.

He is immortal he is instant death;

If you notice him run for all your worth.
