The day a hungry wolf
stole a stray chicken
from his yard, he called
neighbors together
with automatic rifles
high bean truck lights
snarling dogs, and went
in search, finding the pack
circled them, then
slaughtered 6 males
24 females and 30 pups
still on the pap, in terror
as their mothers died
not weaned, skinned
for fur or ego display
innards fed to dogs.
