I adore Ted Hughes and how he can sum up nature, so I wanted to try a poem in his style.

Pure as snow and dusky pelt

Ink dipped snout and tail end

Like water in a brook you slide

Searching crevices and cracks

Where paralysed fear hides


Veracious. Carnivorous.

Sharp black eyed stealth

You murderous dog, brutal bitch

You beautiful vermin, destructive pest

Clawed harbinger of death


Fearless untameable jack and jill

Furiously violent, a deadly rout

Home takers, spoils of your kill

Relentless extinguishes of life

Lethal as a rattle snake bite.


You and I are two of a kind

Men are as stoat refined

More ruthless and tenacious our attack

Cruellest by nature we set our traps

Little stoat watch your back


Adorning kings cloaks

And academia's hoods

Pure white, valuable as gold

Your ermine is our prize

Your life we have stole


By Dibs
