Silently a trap lies in wait
camouflage is it's surprising trait
Scented to lure victims near
his final step knew no fear

The trap triggers mercilessly
he struggles in vain to be free
These awful jaws prove too strong
and his misery will be long

Bones broken in the snap
by a man-made brutal trap
Tighter and deeper it grips
as tendon painfully rips

Blood warms the cold steel
as layers of skin begin to peel
Secured in this leghold he stays
hunger, agony and passing days

The trapper appears at the sight
this victim just too weak to fight
Ruthlessly, this life is lost
some fashions come at a shameful cost
