Sniper Sniper

He’s a sniper. One shot kill!

From far-far-away… Still.

Until a prey shows up.

Empty, serene his breath goes

Away.

That brief moment — between

Emptiness and filling his lungs

With vitality… BANG! Shoots

A prey from afar.

He forgets all about his

Camouflage. Goes away to

Check — is she still breathing?

That deer, dearest deer…

A sacrifice to mankind.
