The Hunchback

My back hunched up.
Curled up toes.
Wrinkled brow.
Slobbery nose,

Greet with a growl.
Look with a scowl.
Children run away.
Adults  say.
There goes the ghoul.

I wait till dark.
To make my mark
Through empty streets.
I creep,  bare feet.
Shadows, places to hide.
To retreat.

To spy, to pry.
With  half  concealed eye.
Behind curtains.
Cracks in wall.
I see it all.

I am the devil
In your mind.
Spying . leaving muck, behind.
They chase me.
With guns and pike.
To clean their town.
They fight.

Until it's light.
Then I retreat,
To sleep and eat,
Ready for the next feat
