The Beast

The Beast

A Poem by Davi Rodrigues

A warning poem about a beast. Oh, beasts. Always there in the woods, or are they?

A dame should be aware
A dumb man asks for proof
A danger's in the woods
A dreadful beast lives there
It hunts and roams around
It howls just like a wolf
It haunts this neighborhood
It has never been found

The feet have claws like knives
The fangs are sharp alike
The fight is never long
The fierce beast never strives
And though it always hides
And though you want to hike
And though I want you home
It's true, I have not lied
