The Window

Before he saw him he smelled the hate and malice
Without thought he arched his back and his eyes searched  for the target
This threat to the women the  man and there young one
He knew she did not know

Lurking in the dark place was a predator
One of them
but not

All he could  do was watch

    Poignant write this! Predators cause fear and helplessness.
