The Creature

The creature stalks through the night

Searching for prey




It doesn't matter

If it's meat

The creature feeds


Horns of a bull

Head of a deer

Body of a goat

Arms of a lion

Feet of a rabbit

Razor sharp fangs

Eyes the color of blood

Those are the agreed upon facts


Some say it breathes fire

Some say it can teleport

Some say it can shoot lightening from it's hands


Most people have only seen one

However there are people

Who claim to have seen more than one


How old is this thing

No one knows for sure

Some say since the beginning of time

Some say it is older than that

What is known

Is that

 The cavemen have seen it

And sketched a recorded record on the walls of their caves

There have been Writings

Found in the ancient pyramids of Egypt

That detail the creatures activities

Even the Ancient Druids

Have written records of the creature

So this thing has been around

A very long time


Over the years

Cults and Secret Societies

Have formed to worship the creature

Offering both

Human and animal sacrifices to it

In hopes to 

Avoid becoming dinner themselves


Still today it hunts

Lurking in the shadow of night



For the proper time

To feed upon it's prey
