The Corner – Entangled Enjambment

The CornerEntangled with enjambment, The Corner was used to construct a concrete edifice to a strange phenomenon that is part of life. In nature, cougars hunt to survive. They stalk their prey before pouncing with unrelenting force, delighting in the meal for the day. It seems a similar practice is exhibited amongst the human variety of this animal.


Cougars & Kittens

                                     Be-
                                 ware of
                                 cougars
                         & kittens: While
          one of them bites, with the other
           you'll be smitten. With the lure
               of their eyes you'll go weak
                  at the knees, as their claws
                  sink in you'll cry out "more
              please!" Though their lips drip
             honey, their words are lies that
           can only be seen through by those
         who are wise. They go about their
        ritual, it's the same each day. Each
       one catches its prey in the same old
     way. Howsoever they might 	        hook
you, you'll no doubt be on high!	 But
   be very careful or else you too 	will die!

  1. Wow, this must have been a pernickety job. Did you use any special formatting tool? I believe kittens are superior to cougars, as they obviously rule the internet nowadays.

  2. Got to read it at last! You did well with the formatting, can see that kitty in the poem’s image. Great comparison… does eLFy speak from experience?
