The Wild Dog Sleeps

The wild dog sleeps in the silence
The impeding dawn is sure to rile the animal
The law will be broken by its defiance

A body will sleep at the bottom of a canal
Silence will call
A person will stand before jude, jury and the panel

Pride held high, standing tall
All keep a weathering eye
Here comes the trip, the stumble, the fall

Listen to the spouting of lies
It jumps, it bites
Tears will be shed, many will cry

It won’t let go, it’s grip to tight
To to stop, to stand, to fight.
