The stripes

The stripes have followed me

I cannot shift them from my trail

Their long tails striding to infinity

Their heads upon my spine

I see no deviation in their path

No sign of any hesitancy

Sure solid and true is their flight

No escape for me in sight

The tension in their form

Is eating into the heart of me

Their darting nature is stinging me

Poking into my screaming sinews

No escape for me in my plight

I dare not turn or waver

Or a dead man I will be.
