The Dead Don’t Leave

The Dead Don’t Leave, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @Brianrrs37 on Twitter)

The dead don’t leave
There is no reprieve
He’s meant to deceive

The hounds of hell
Cast a dark spell
Blood fills the well

Three headed monster
This barking beast
Froths and drools

Gnashing his teeth
Snarls and growls
Snapping it’s jaws

Razor sharp claws
He keeps them in
Cerberus gnaws

On your flesh
Fire his breath
Forever your death.

I absolutely DO NOT believe in a hell of any kind, nor this mythological Cerberus 3 headed dog. But I like to practice writing poetry to keep my mind sharp, and was inspired by another poet writing about other mythological beasts.
