Demon Dru

Demon Dru

A Poem by Richard Williams
"

They prepare for Halloween.

"
When Demon Dru saw September through
and felt a tinge of rime,
he saw the yield in the pumpkin field
and knew that it was time.
So near a plot he arranged a spot
as he was want to do;
and he along with the graveyard throng
planned their October boo.
He made high tones with Billy the Bones
beneath a crescent moon;
and as they howled, Beelzebub prowled
to their incanting tune.
Then zombies rose with maladroit toes
who walked a figure nine;
but Dru made sure they knew where they were,
so they were dead on line.
Now as a ghoul considered it cool
to usurp Dru’s grave right,
Dru made him read the demonry creed
within the scold of night.
A wicked witch emerged from her niche
to look Dru in the eye;
she rode her broom with Shadow of Doom,
and chanted on the fly.
They practice hard in their eerie yard--
it’s Halloween they heed.
And scare will grow in mortals below,
for Dru’s the demon seed.

Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant. You're probably my favourite writer here, and this poem is a powerful example why. On first read, the words just roll off the tongue so pleasantly, one might overlook the subtle artistry that permeates this poem. The rich rhyming scheme, with the internal rhymes forms a splendid brocade to showcase your talents, and the meter serves to further highlight them. Just.. spellbinding, man. 100/100
