The verbal beast

Trifextra: Week Ninety-One

This weekend Trifecta has the following on the menu for Trifextra challenge-

It’s now time for some Trifextra fun. Thirty years ago, Roald Dahl published the book Dirty Beasts, a collection of poems for children about weird and wonderful animals. The last poem, however, is called The Tummy Beast about a boy who thinks there’s someone living in his belly. Your Trifextra challenge is to write 33 words on a beast in an unusual place. No swamps or forests or caves, we really want you to take your beast out of its comfort zone. http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/#sthash.eAWaxdhd.dpuf

This was indeed very tough and I almost gave up before deciding to just go with the flow.Hope it is not too bad 😛

The Verbal beast

 

Hiding between the vocal chords

it creeps up on the tongue

caustic words of derision

cutting down everyone

cares not for enemies made

nor the friends lost-

Sarcasm, the beast

spares no one!
