It roams all over the earth,
Across the seas by free winds
And down the path of no dearth--
Epochal in each epoch, contingous:
Of the seven, the most dangerous.

Consumed in consumation, poor,
It plagues, yet we hold on;
And leave the lock off the door.
Biological it has to be:
How else could it root so deeply?

Though the beast has a home,
It spreads throughout the globe,
Averse to no lands, idea or tome;
Sometimes only catching a few:
An invisible warrior fights anew--

He alone will not win,
Without unanimous assistance:
For the beast counters man within.
Scales wrought of indulgance,
Fire-breathes the paper penance.

I love the way you give the Beast character, without personification... if that makes a great deal of sense (i hope it does... if it doesn't, i'm blaming monday...)

I really liked this, the description and progression is avid and enticing. I love how nothing is spelled out and the reader isn't bashed over the head with the concepts you are writing about. Many thanks for sharing.
