The fox, he slinks in dark of night
Oft’ takes his prey without a fight
So unaware are they of he
His gleaming teeth they do not see
His soundless steps they do not hear
As each moment brings him near

Is all so well we take no heed?
So unaware we are his feed?
Then as his snapping jaw takes hold
Fear crashes in and blood runs cold
It’s too late then to guard the path
Insatiable beast must feed his wrath

If the watchman stands his guard
To beat the foe is not so hard
Tis a battle won when full aware
The eyes that see him lurking there
Regardless of his plan to hurt
He cannot take the one alert

KJV - Matthew 24:43 “But know this, that if the Goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up”

Nicely done. Enjoyed the rhythmic beat of the poem along with the great message based on a Bible verse. Creative and I thoroughly enjoyed the read! Good Job!

Very good poem about staying watchful and aware of the enemy.

Very good thoughts. Like the interpretation of scripture.

Well-written! The message was excellent, the rhyme almost perfect. This is powerful.

These lines really stood out to me for the parallelism:
"His gleaming teeth they do not see
His soundless steps they do not hear
As each moment brings him near"

Beautiful!
