I write what I feel…

The Beast



A segmented monster,
A body of men,
A mass of humanity
Forming one entity
Lay squirming on the ground,
Hissing and spitting
All around.
Then the head moved
Passed over and down
Until it became the tail,
Curled like a scorpion
Ready to sting.


This was a weird dream I had the other night
where the head became the tail and
the tail became the head. Long way round
to do an about turn! What it meant I have
no idea!

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  2. That was my first thought, Maxi. Or change of government…


  3. Odd dream but is that not the nature of the beast. It becomes a twisted mess with no simple solution. A simple snake , you just cut off the head but this old world don’t have a simple solution to it’s problems because it’s all tied together. Maybe you are picking up on that?


  4. You could be right. Perhaps it isn’t literal at all… 🙂
