The Hunter Gracchus

More hesitant than lost
And entirely aware
Only his fear of battling the present
Makes him unsure of who to displease

“Don’t you envy The Hunter Gracchus?
His misfortune is certain
His ship strays forever
His undoing not his ow..”

Revealing all, his words falter
And a feeble smile
Reassures me of their invalidity
And of what’s to come
