This is a very true poem. The food chain and life cycle can be very vicious. It can also be compared to humans but I wont go into that. The flow, wording, format and rhyming were all very good. Plus it is easy to understand. 5/5
I really enjoyed this poem Joe. The meaning behind this piece was outstanding, The way you portrayed survival in the wild all under such a natural sense was stunning. The way I read this piece what that it was a metaphor for todays society. It seemed as though you were describing how different "classes" so to say through life are treated. The more powerful the class [Eagles] the higher up they are. The less powerful [Sawns] the lower they are. It's almost like being tormented. That's just my interpretation anyway.
The rhyme and flow of this piece was superb, Not once did it lose it's flow or go off track, I admire that within this poem. The rhyme didn't seem forced, it all came together quite nicely. Your word choice vivid and truely outstanding. I liked the fact that the simplicity created a nice effect over the atmoshpere.
I liked the fact that within each stanza you revealed a little something more about the topic. The first stanza held a nature feel, whilst the second was about animals in a predator world and the third revealed survival. As I came along reading I had an idea what this poem was about yet you never made it obvious til the ending stanza. That was a great effect.
