On the Breath of the Hideous Beast

On the breath of the hideous beast,

The musk of man most surely seeped through.

To him her throat was like an elaborate feast,

As his clawed hands wound, her fear grew.

~

Her hair a mix of auburn tangle and knot,

From chase through thicket sharp and deep.

The witches coven in a diabolical plot,

Souls unsuspecting they hoped to reap.

~

This fairest maiden, a nymph to be sure,

Was sacrificed to Hell on Albatross wing.

As Satanโ€™s minion fulfills their lore,

Discordant the coven dances and sings.

~

Then the unlikeliest of heroes appeared,

A mendicant cloaked in camels hair robe.

Wielding a sword Templar cross in it was seared,

Though the Templars had vanished long ago I was told.

~

Under Mother Ursa Minor, Polaris brightly shining,

The fleet-footed beggar struck a single fatal blow.

Striking the beastโ€™s skull tangerine sparks blinding,

Sending him to Hell whence he came down below.

~

Lowering his hood the beggar glowed unearthly white,

This man was not a man as we assumed.

Pointing his sword up to Heaven and the night,

He disappeared banishing the coven to the gloom.

~

The beggar–an angel sent from Almighty I suppose,

Will the wonders from above never cease.

Sent to save us all from Godโ€™s worst demonic foes,

Guiding us into eternal peace.

  1. I won’t tell you anything new, but it is the same in any other field.
    You’d think past showes us at least anything, but no.
    Feel free to disagree but the world changes, and we have no control whatsoever over it.
    E.g., If only Obama had enough balls to put Putin to his place, but it seems like it’s never happening, welcome world war.
    A profound post, thanks!
