The Predator,                                                                                                                                   He hunts because it's fun. He enjoys the hunt as much as the chase.                                         He loves that surge of adrenalyn when the prey first notices he/she is being stalked.                He can taste their fear.                                                                                                                    It's good.                                                                                                                  

 

 

Hunter, one who stalks his prey,
With no regard for the victim.
He enjoys it, for him this is play.

Silently he watches, hidden from our view.
Patiently he bides his time.
All things when time is due.

Most fearsome of his kind is Man,
The Predator Supreme.
Of him there is no like, above him none can stand.

For Mankind has no boundaries,
He picks and chooses prey.
There is no question here or quandary.

Friend or foe means nothing.
To him all things are game.
He simply hunts for something.

All things are subject in his mind.
Whatever strikes his fancy,
Even his own kind.

Very nice description of this wicked wicked type of person. There are not hoardes of them, but they are OUT There and they are misery.

POWERFUL ending. Great statement. I've often thought that this kind of hunter is certainly capable of taking the next leap

G'day Judy … I wonder how much hunting would occur is animals had guns and birds dropped bombs. It's so easy to target the defenceless for either the thrill or a trophy - thank you Judy - Lindsay

Excellent way to fight back, Judy, It does seem throughout history, what ever or when ever there is peace and contentment, there is always some one that comes along and stuffs it up....I been here on soup 9 years now, and have witness it so many times, in fact its happening right now.

There are so many ways to stalk and hunt and you don't necessarily have to use a gun to kill. You can kill someone simply by wounding their spirit. Any kind of hunting is cruel. Thank you Harry. God Bless and Happy Easter to you and yours. JB

You described our Maltese hunters to perfection. Pity they have not been banned.

Thank you Victor. I believe if you don't have to hunt to survive then you shouldn't. God Bless, JB
