Ancient Menace – Poem

The dimly lit cave failed to illuminate the walls around it – only the white bones showing clearly the gaping jaw and teeth of the monstrous beast. Frozen in time.

Images of blazing fire spewing from its mouth entered my mind, for what else could it be but a dragon? Horns sticking out of its skull, and eyes cold and dead, as they would be in life.

Some of the skin still stuck to the beast’s jaws, half decomposed and menacing. Smaller bones lay scattered around it; the remains of humans piling onto each other. Its meal fully digested, and terrifying, even in death.
