Wolf hunting

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5#6#7
Run for life, out of skin jumping,
But today is the same as before.
Beaters have their fun of hunting,
Driving me to the guns ambush row.
From the shadows of fir-trees neatly
Outshoots of the rifles strike.
Running wolves either strong or witty
But becoming just targets on white.
 
You've calculated it for best,
But blood is boiling!
For mighty veterans and whining pups.
Men shout, dogs are barking till the vomit.
Blood on snow and the stains of red flags.
 
Foul game made to wolves, but no doubt
In your hearts and you shoot steady hand.
Cut the freedom by flags all around
And complete lucky shots to your fun.
Wolf is sticked to the ancient tradition.
From the milk of the wolf-mother pups
Sucked the essence of strict prohibition:
"Never cross the line of the red flags!"
 
You've calculated it for best,
But blood is boiling!
For mighty veterans and whining pups.
Men shout, dogs are barking till the vomit.
Blood on snow and the stains of red flags.
 
Legs are strong, to the race are fitting.
Alfa wolf, can you tell me, why
We are sheepishly getting hitted,
Never tried ever crossing the line.
I'm a wolf, I'm of nature dependent.
Comes to end all my struggle for life.
And the one to which I was intended
Smiled foretasting and lifted the rifle.
 
You've calculated it for best,
But blood is boiling!
For mighty veterans and whining pups.
Men shout, dogs are barking till the vomit.
Blood on snow and the stains of red flags.
 
Through the flags, through the cursed barriers!
Thirst for life wiped the ban from mind.
Fled to freedom and heard from harriers
Screams of wonder dying behind.
Run for life, out of skin jumping,
But today's game has different rules.
Beaters had their fun of hunting,
Now comes their turn to lose!
 
You've calculated it for best,
But blood is boiling!
For mighty veterans and whining pups.
Men shout, dogs are barking till the vomit.
Blood on snow and the stains of red flags.

Тоже решилась поучаствовать во флеш-мобе, перевести эту песню. Я не носитель английского языка, так что грамматические ошибки - это скорее всего не фичи, но баги. Буду благодарна критике. Каждый предложенный ранее перевод имеет свои "находки". Надеюсь, и мой вариант кому-то тронет душу.
