The Jungle ..

by TarekOfCairo

A wood like all

and I am imprisoned

between the long legs

and the fallen stems

which breaks under my feet

The heat I feel

Makes me wonder

Shouldn’t there be

Plenty of shade in here

My eyes climb the trees

To the pointy bare soaring beams

praying to the searing sun heat

Sharpening their bloody teeth

Could that be ,

for me ..

Shocked I flee

“Tail in my teeth”

As it struck me

The only shade in here

Is down the soil

Deep under the trees
