Dennis W.

Sniper

Searching the scenery,
Calmly staying in place,
I stay low to the ground.
The grass is taller than me.
I am on a mission.
My enemy is hiding.
He searches as I do.

I am a killer.
This is my job.
I am the best.
There is no one better.

I continue to search.
I see movement.
I look though my scope.
I inhale deeply...

It is over.
