MANHUNT IN THE EVERGLADES, by            
First Line: Crack of pursuer's gun
Last Line: Dogs on the scent.
Subject(s): Everglades, Florida; Manhunts


Crack of pursuer's gun ...
Hunter and hunted run ...
Dogs on the scent.

Bullets have found his thigh ...
Yelps and a stifled cry,
Startled things blunder by ...
Dogs on the scent.

Night spins a web to snare
Hunter and hunted there.
All but forespent,
Panting and nose in air ...
Dogs on the scent.
