The Sylltis Mantable

Anything after the ( - ) is the mantis, and before the bird [until the third line, then it is all Mantis.  I didn't know how to properly format the second half. 

Syllables were counted..! For the Mantis!

An ancient insect,
Inherited prayers
In walking meditation.
Martial art master practicing
Weighed posture, lightning offensive,
Cactus'ing prey with poetic inverses. 
. . . . . . . . . .  
Bird proses threat, - patience and timing impacts.
Lurid pecking to a rhyme, - fastens stance, lungs for the neck,
The bird sprawls. - again he flings, digging into the veins,
Victory. His arms roar high, feasting on the spoils of war.
A mythic legend, an insect king, the sylltis mantable.
