Warily Wild: a cunningly cautious cave man

Poem ~

he wandered through the wilderness
of a mortal frontier

contemplating his surroundings while
cloaked in fear

ravaging the land with greed
for fulfillment

plundering from others
for his own enrichment

raising armies for battle,
power, and control

he ruled the land
but lost his soul

the villagers rebelled
as his kingdom crumbled

the skies broke open
and the mountains rumbled

lost in his mind
he became delirious

welcome to the wilderness
of the human experience
