In Fairness to Jackals

You are a jackal dripping 
A childish cotton candy concoction 
From your canine teeth
Though that may be unfair to jackals 

Less clever and more desperate, 
You are more like a hyena
It's just that it sounds like "cackle" which reminds me of you
Which is how I got there 

Really though you are more like an insect 
That I have instinctively come to loath
With evolutionary fervor, a lesson
Learned by students in classes that I skipped

A bug of an insidious genus that cloaks itself 
In motherliness then tramples its young unknowingly 
Not even taking care to savor their meat
Nature is too elegant too intelligent to craft a creature like that

So I will set traps knowing that
You can't beat the house but 
Each one of your drones I kill will 
Be a tiny Independence Day
