Harbingers of Death
Effortless, fluid motion, sailing on the currents of air,
two hawks appear.
From yellow fierce eyes scorching disdain burns into my mind.
Feathered instrument of death, snatch your victim
from the earth.
Soar beyond the reach of man, let him feel
your mocking scorn.
Pitiless in your heavenly reign,
Subject to the whim of man,
unaware of your vunerable state, you fly
by mercy and grace,
