The Sniper

The Sniper
A Marksman’s Poetic Paradigm

I am the Sniper and you are my mark.
I am hidden in a tower window while you are exposed in the park.

 

Holding my rifle, looking inside the scope…
To have you in my sights, that is all that I hope.

 

Days, weeks, and months, I’ll stay and wait…
Till you appear whether it be early or late.

 

With my finger on the trigger…
… and the .50 caliber bolted onto the chamber…
I’ll be ready to fire whether it be…
… this second, the next minute, the next hour…
… even if it’s later today, or soon after.

 

Till it’s the exact moment, I won’t move nor pull the trigger…
I’ll stay concealed here until you’re heart’s in my cross-hair.
Waiting in the shadows is my game from the beginning till ever after…
I tell you, I am an excellent Marksman with a Rifle…
… and I am an excellent Sniper.

 

Barret M82 - .50 Caliber bolt action, recoil-operated, semi-automatic anti-materiel rifle.
