There Is a Dark Creature...

There Is a Dark Creature...

There is a dark creature Β 
Who lives in the hills Β 
And it hunts, and it hurts Β 
Doesn't care what it kills Β 
Β 
It preys on the weak Β 
Asserting it's wrath Β 
On an unsteady victim Β 
Who gets in it's path Β 
Β 
And it ever wants more Β 
Than the excess it owns Β 
Stripping the land Β 
Right down to the bones Β 
Β 
It puffs up it's mane Β 
To better the rest Β 
And forces on others Β 
It's sexual zest Β 
Β 
Such a hatred for beings Β 
Not of it's kind! Β 
A more horrid creature Β 
Will God never find Β 
Β 
There is a dark creature Β 
That lives in the hills Β 
And down in the valley Β 
Behind window sills Β 
Β 
There is a dark creature Β 
Who lives in the mirror Β 
And he's coming to get you...Β 
Though he's already here.Β  Β 
Β

Thanks Poet D,Β 
It was the only 'creature' picture I could find on my computer. LOL. I wish I had a mirror picture, because it's really about the human race(some, not nice people like you), but I didn't have one.Β 
Thanks a lot, my friend!Β

Don't scare me like that!! LOL. It's too early in my tenure here for me to be pushing people away! (usually it takes them at least a week to completely despise me. LOL).Β 
Thanks! And good one, you got me.Β

Absolutely loved the way you used the creature as a metaphor for corruption and greed that exists in humanity,
Pretty crafty of you :)

I don't know how I missed your comments, but thank you! You're really nice, and I really appreciate it! I don't trust me writing, so it's really a pleasant thing to receive nice comments from such a gorgeous writer as yourself.Β 
Thanks again,Β
