Eclipse Monster

Eerie shadows cast by the eclipse stretch across the Earth.

Casting an ominous pall over the sea, the sand, and all other land, the eclipse causing a monster to arise, and it is big and grand.

Lurking in the darkness, a monstrous beast hides, ready to eat us for its feast.

Invisible, immortal, its presence never ceased.

Perched upon the horizon, aroused by the eclipse, its blood-red eyes gaze at us, it licks its lips.

Stirring ancient fears that were once long forgotten, we quake in our boots, now seeing the monster, as our lives it loots.

Eyes looking at the eclipse monster and wide with terror, we huddle real close, but this does us no good, as it slashes our throats.

    Glad eclipses only happen somewhere in the world every 18 months or so if that's what they bring.
