We are caged animals.
We are caged animals,
ears flat, lip curled back,
a blind attack waiting to happen

We are savage nemeses.
We are holy warriors,
red-eyed, throat clutched tight,
a ringside cheer in a dirty fight.

We are brazen animals.

We enrage our enemies
with rousing elegies.
Forthright, head held high,
shining knight in a losing battle.

We are noble meddlers.
We are gory foreigners,
newborn, careworn,
shorthorns in uniform.

We are a fearsome pedigree.

(And now we have a reason to howl, bound together, muzzle to jowl.
Blood is thicker than desire, and the tide is rising.)
