The Gargoyle

                                The Gargoyle

The Gargoyle, a spooky character that sits around castle walls
said to be in league with the Devil, a nondescript creature with
wings, tail and horns, which can be traced back in time to the 
medieval period, were people were often afraid of their own shadow
these Daemon-like apparitions were often worshipped by
Devil worshippers who often made human sacrifices to appease
these Demons; over the years these cults have been slowly 
eradicated by people who stood for law and order in the land
who wanted to stop this barbaric practice.
The Gargoyle eventually disappeared into folk-lore history.

    You are right Elai, it takes a lot of imagination to come up with folklore ideas, I have written a few other spooky poems in my collection, I will be posting more soon, thank you for your comments. John

    You are wrong my friend, My poetry is my own, I don't even resource anything, it was my trip into folklore history, maybe the encylopedia snatched it from me, who knows, try some of my other poems and see if they impress you more, this was one of my early poems it may not be as colourful as the new ones. All the best. John
