The Wolf

Beyond the fence dogs hear the wolf howling-
rarely sleeping, always hungry, he is prowling.

Curled up beneath the porch the dogs aren’t sleeping-
closer, closer, closer the wolf is creeping.

Dogs nibble kibble while the wolf is sucking bones-
Out in the woods the wolf is hunting all alone.
