Tattoos in Mayberry

Maybe I'm a rat,
maybe I'm a mouse
Maybe I'm the night marauder
creeping in your house

slippery as a lizard.
a cotton-mouthed snake.
It depends
on how much money
you might care to stake.

Maybe I'm a howling wolf
hungry for a meal.
Maybe I'm that Grizzly Bear
with a honey of a deal.
Maybe I'm a minstral,
a prime minister
a King
I just might be your nemesis
Or a song you like to sing
I could be most anything
Above or below your station
inject me intravenously
so i can square your situation

Maybe I'm your hopes and dreams
or maybe I'm your scourge
Maybe I'm cold thunderous silence
Or your last departing words.
Find solace , 
in these present moments
listen closely to the breeze.,
take a breath
to clear your head .
when this world 
drops you to your knees
