Never Look into the Eyes of a Snot Monster


snot monster








Sketch by Terry Whidborne



If you gaze into the eyes of a snot monster

behind the glasses and the bourgeois ideal

you will discover he has fled

joined the ranks of the un-dead

zombies’ve  feasted on his brains

ghouls have slurped up his remains

you’re merely staring at a shell

so look no further for who can tell

when a demon without a home

may move in and begin to moan

a head quite so full of snot

would provide an ideal lure

for a monster with an addiction

to evil condensed so pure
