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

Stoat

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

-----------------------------------
