The Wood Creatures
written by Katy Durnford 28/01/2018

they search the forest for people
they are tall and got fangs
they use the swords and garrots
and strive throughout the land

in the events of war
they gang up in their millions
they know no boundaries and while away the time
if you don't conform they chop off your hand

the creatures lay in wait
for the humans to come in pursuit
they wave the swords outnumbered
for they dont want you as a mate

in the event of love
the creatures cooh and writhe
bearing gifts and wearing fancy clothes
waiting at the gate

the creatures gather and pay homage
to their god and worship with a hallaucinating drug
and give to their god a sacrifice
which can involve a dove

they have the god in their minds
they dance and they sing
around a fire at night
with no grace you will find

in the woods it is clear who will succeed
humans over creatures will win
magic encounters often
and the life will then be freed

into the night the creatures make you fear
terrible thoughts that are profound
so when you go into the woods
make sure you make no sound

"Walk with the Angels, for they are amongst us. Believe and you will see!"
