The Beast Who Owns The Night

by Duncan Jones

“I’m the biggest, I’m the baddest!”
The rivals’ sound was heard
But one and done was every one
Their challenges absurd

He let them have their rumors
He watched their silly shows
“I’m the strongest, I’m the fastest!”
You know how the story goes

As king he wasn’t likely …
Even threatened, mocked, and teased
But the talking seems to come from those
Who believe their words the least

“The loudest noise comes from the boys
Most terrified to fight!”
No, you’ll never hear a footstep
From the beast who owns the night
