The Beast


The Beast

Its appetite is voracious,
Its manners less than gracious,
Taking, taking, never giving,
Consuming the lives of the living.

Having no conscience or remorse,
Once loosed it always stays its course,
Destroying all that is in its path,
Never considering the aftermath.

Destruction is its nature, you see,
Though it has no dislike for you or me,
It ever follows its natural bent,
Being impartial in its ravishment.
