The Green Monster Beast

Written by: Donald Reith

Everyone, and Everything was trembling of the Beast

 He'd rip you up pull out your gourds and settle in for his Feast

For all the Winter Trails his Name avails

as the Traveler to meet Least 

So with open eyes and in Great Peril I must Surmise,

 I packed my Guns to Leave,

 I went on Safari for my Prize, 

to the Lands that hold the Green Monster, East

Upon first Sight Was filled with Fright

But was Astonished at what I did See

The Green Monster Beast

 Fixed his great eyes on me

My first defense was to cry out!

 for a Priest

it was then I realized 

with great surprise

 it hadn't any Teeth!
