Beastie Mommy

In the cold breath of moonlit night
beasties howl in crescent light
crawly creepies weeping shrieking
shivering quivering slithering withering
wing torn dragons scarred and broken
moaning groaning sighing writhing
shadow dandies cringe in horror
growing floating exploding bloating
bellies flopping hip hop hopping never stopping
sin is fading
evil waning
beastie babies and all their kin
burn away in luminosity’s might

but never fear my beastie dears
for it’s only just a brief respite-

for come the morrow
on and after
the mommy beastie
hums and waits
dimming of the
moonlit moon
lays its eggs in dim dark corners
weaving webs around our hearts
making light fade into darkness
where beastie babies swarm about
singing and stinging and doing their shout…

~Thanks Mommy~

nature weeps, the devil sings
at man’s greed and pride
and what it brings

just lots of useless
little things…

"He was the brightest of all the stars
of heaven, and even ripped and torn
in half, he still shone with a fire of a
billion suns. With a mighty roar
and a Big Bang, he imploded and
exploded out of the nothingness; and
the flow of Time began.”

Excell piece of poetry that can lead to all forms of interpretation and visions. Why is it then it reminds me of a couple of families I have know, both in a good and bad light?

Thanks for the read,

Ah, Bob. Always finding new and inventive ways of making my skin crawl...happily.

Didn't realize you were the cockroach until I started reading, then -- well, only one person can write fun, bouncy, wordsmithy beastie poems, in my experience. Love it!
