The Extremely Gross Monster

(inspired by a writing exercise in Karen Benke’s Rip the Page)

In the forest there once lived a leechish, fly-infested, oozing monster with crud-like scales.  He was a serious bloodsucker.  The color of his skin was yellowish-greenish like mucus.  He had a deadly gnaw.  The inhabitants of nearby villages called him pond scum because he was extremely gooey like sludge.  He was also hairy and full of lumps.  This monster smelled so sewer-like that he could make you vomit.   When he emerged from the forest, people would act squirmish because he was so garbage-like, flea-like, booger-like, and blob-like!  Anybody who saw him would definitely die.

    For such a young poet, he provies such magnificent imagery of entities and things that would surely provide a vain reaction from society; and thus provides much insight to what mankind fears the most, what it does not know. this reminds me of a connection; to one of the well known poets from England, John Donne. He wrote a poem about death, and how death should not be appreciated; called ‘Death Be Not Proud’. Both poems are about mankinds fears and rather unpleasent entities. Infact, you can read it and appreciate it yourself here, at John Donne Poems.
