Bursts of light come at us

As we try to escape the wrath

Sinister as we thought it was

It had nothing on her.


Nails as long as spikes

But don’t worry

You won’t get that close.

She lures targets into

A false sense of security

Only to show them

How they can fall off this cliff

Just like all the others.

How many will fall

Before she feels vindicated?


We dodge the question before it is asked

Then wipe our brows in relief.

We’ll live today…


She looks at me and winks

Not sure what that meant

Since I thought women were safe?
