Sentimental Sunday: Figurehead

Clawless and clueless

he swipes at his prey

but somehow they feared him

and all shrank away


Giving their power

for it seemed of no use

they abided the roaring

and took the abuse


He wanted to lead them

they all fell in line

not seeing the danger

though they would in time


They blocked the cave mouth

please don’t go inside

but they were the victims

of their fears and their pride


So into the maw

they all seemed to vanish

and those who would help

were chastised and banished


In darkness they cowered

convinced by his roar

not realizing there was

no light anymore
