You inevitable menacing eventuality
Your irreversible fading of faculty
Invisibly existing from inception
Locked within the crate of infancy
Overridden- terrified by juvenile
But courageously storming at the climax
You resolutely descend at retirement
Pushing to the loathsome derailment
Pretty creatures to deterioration
Your revolting withered achievement
Reveal thy alteration proof
Oh! You formidable lethal unguis
Power beyond the competence of wits
You slight the concealing mask to fix
And defeat the slowing ploy with time
Your dentine tearing all resistant tricks
To wreck the fabric of the alluring design
To devour till one’s frail and gaunt
You who strike till one’s beaten
You who bite till one’s wholly eaten
Mock and dare me your grip to resist
For each attempt your fang to deepen
Follow the hollow to the depth within
Keep toiling till the entirety is damned.
