Poems: “Black Mamba”

The black mamba strikes with ferocity.

Its enemies crumble due to his presence.

His rivals see the strength, the swiftness and the determination in its eyes.

His followers see the black mamba’s life flash before their eyes.

From humble beginnings to being crowned king,
To trials that made the mamba weak,
The black mamba struck back at those who hated him and rose once again.

The enemies feared his new prominence,
Yet the black mamba’s time has faded and the mamba is now come to pass.

The enemies will respect him, rivals will praise him and his followers will mourn his mark on history.

The black mamba will leave with dignity and pride as he leaves the ferocity behind.
