Predators of the Night

Prompt: Write an ABC poem. It contains five lines. You may begin your poem with any letter of the alphabet. The next three lines must follow sequence. So if you start with the letter "G" the next line must start with the letter "H". The last line can begin with any letter of the alphabet.


Jungle cats stalk the night
Killing swiftly out of sight
Life for them is midnight quarry
Making many mothers worry
Gather your loved ones

Nocturnal villain's gleaming tooth
Opens flesh to end a youth
Prowling devil makes no sound
Quiet breathing holds no bound
Hope wanes in short supply

Roars are for the cats of day
Stealing silence in a way
That jungle cats never claim
Unless it ends their stealthy game
Intense stillness
