The Animal Within


My stomach grumbles

As loud as a lion's roar

And I see the pizza slice

That sits directly across from me


I take small bits and pieces

Letting go of time

Until soon enough 

I pounce on my prey and kill it


IÕm so sorry

It just looked

Too mouthwatering to

Resist not devouring
