Stalactite fury

It seemed dangerous
Claustrophobic
Death wouldn’t throw stone knives
At you from above
That would be inappropriate
Rude
Unseemly
It can’t have a media spectacle
Too much attention
Attention was deadly

Then death itself might be wiped out
Or at least be an endangered species
Threatened to within an inch of its life
Unacceptable
Deplorable
Reprehensible

Better to stick to the tried and true
Down here among the shadows and torchlight
With wary subterranean citizens thinking of you
As a vague possibility at best
A concrete certainty to befall others at worst
This is good
This is very good
