Ode To The Beast

One eye of burnished brown The other of glowing yellow Coat the color of loamy ground An imposing, fearsome fellow Peers about and leaves no doubt Those orbs so fiercely feral That to try to pet, one might regret Best be done at one’s own peril Muzzle abounding with teeth so white Sharp claws clicking upon the stones Jaws and claws and gaping maw Designed each and all for crushing bones God only knows what that cold wet nose Can sense, scent and conjure up… For now tho’ at least, he’s a tiny beast Na’ more than a warm, wriggly, Wee pup
