Off a Hunting

Wind in the pines whistles
as the snow blows cold and thick.
Could cheerfully sell our souls
for some tender and a dry stick.

Been out hunting the old trap line
caught in this storm a brewing.
Temperature falling mighty fast
looks bad, and we ain't fooling.

Hunkered down under these pines
scraggly enough to offer little protection.
It's a getting darker, and we're concerned
about any further speculation.

Tried to shoot a plane awhile back
figured that way he'd a know we was here.
Speck we didn't even come close
cause the sky since has been clear.

Froze to death a hunting a deer
who would have ever thought.
Sure didn't see this end a coming
purty poor way a being caught.

It's  funny the way a man figures
he ain't never going to run out of time.
And then when it comes right down to it
he ends up on his knees, in midst of a bind.

DJ-
A haunting poem.
Take SEA's advice
get that mirror if you go hunting.
