a leopard a serpent a crow
find fire alight in the snow
each make a claim to the heat of the flame
each with out heed to the other one’s need

the power the poison the flight
battling all through the night
no pity or patience just dissipation
the cynical head is just as good as dead

cunning and craft
drain it all to the last
leaving nothing
for no one to have

take for the sake
of not giving but wait
what you’re coveting meanwhile
will change into ash

a leopard a serpent a crow
all frozen and stiff in the snow
each wanted more than they even had use for
each casualties of their own lust of war

brothers and sisters take heed
be ever on guard against greed
for danger is certain to pull down the curtain
if you try to resist it so blindly

a leopard a serpent a crow
a leopard a serpent a crow
a leopard a serpent a crow
a leopard a serpent a crow
