Mythos of the Cthulhu Monster

Mythos of the Cthulhu Monster

An oak branch danced to a serenaded minuet ...

neither wind nor music could be heard as

throbbing hearts were beating like a drums roll.

The Cthulhu monster inhales and shadows bend

all along the high mossy wall of the great castle.

The keep wipes cascading sweat from his brow;

a murder of crows sends ‘meet and greets' as the

the monster of the mythos looks toward the sky

black tea steeps and cream drips slowly from a

silver spoon bequeathed upon his year of birth.

An oak branch danced to a serenaded minuet ...

the Cthulhu monster exhales once again, and

dark shadows bend whilst long wailing screams

drift and echo repentant as twilight fades and joins

this black starry night whence a monster walked.

In the light of a flurry of torches, his octopus like

head swung left then right, feelers test the winds,

scales on his manatee looking body reflect colors,

prominent claws on his hind and fore feet dig in

and his long narrow wings fluttering like a fairy.

An oak branch danced to a serenaded minuet ...

those in the castle quake and quiver in repose.

The Cthulhu Monster is awake once more.

(Inspired by the writings of Author H.P. Lovecraft)
