The Beast of Deepest PeruIn the shifting sands of the deepest eastThe Beast of Deepest Peru by al3x-mM
lies a very peculiar and unfathomable beast,
who stalks victims with a glint in his eye,
and a gentlemans gait in his muted stride.
At first you may be fooled by such a courteous gaze,
but know that 'tis as insubstantial as the desert haze
and wouldnt hesitate a second before taking your life
in a manner much more deadly than any hunting knife.
The common monsters of the world are hideous and warped;
sporting foul unpleasant features, with lumps and eyes that gawp
This particular individual bears no unsightly demeanour,
yet in this world youre sure to find that there is no fiend meaner.
And dwelleth not in dark cave this most ancient of perils,
nor in a gothic cathedral flanked by coarse demonic heralds
(For such is the force of habit of the very foolish ghoul -
It is a white picket fence that surrounds the evil most cruel).
So as you venture down the busy market streets
perusing oh so gaily the fine selection of meats,
