The Pack Begins to Circle

(In the poet’s current situation the pack is composed, not of females, but of those who wish they were.

The Pack Begins to Circle

The pack begins to circle
They’re nipping at her heels
The Alpha females in the lead
Each pers’nal umbrage feels

‘Gainst any form of loveliness,
Any woman who hath not
Entitlement and security
By dedicated ugliness bought

They work it as a unit
Gossipy insinuation
Here, a planted crime,
Subsequent accusation

Admirably practiced
Their group technique, but here’s the thing:
The name for what they’re doing
Is that same old saw: railroading
