ECHIDNA


Sitting in front of the fire tonight,
Wondering what excitement happens tonight,
Watching my dogs through the night,
Knowing their looking for a fight,
Admiring the quite through the night,
All of a sudden a small dark shadow appears in the night &
I notice the shadow has spikes,
As the spikes appear it becomes clear,
That a echidna has appeared in the night,
Watching the echidna wonder through the night,
All of a sudden my dogs want to fight the echidna tonight,
As my dogs bite down on the echidna tight,
The echidna rolls into a ball of spikes,
As i approach the fight to stop my dogs hurting the echidna tonight,
I notice the blood from the fight,
But i notice the echidna is alright,
It's the dogs blood from the mouth full of spikes,
Now it has become clear that the echidna has nothing to fear.

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
