Something’s happening

by davebarclay1954

What is this strange outline
A figure neither animal or human
Did such things exist once upon a time
Were we ever sure of things we saw

But creatures like these have never been seen
At least not in the last 100 years
Folk lore tells us all manner of things
Walked this planet after the dinosaur

Should we, dare we, believe the Grimm’s
Or was that tales to frighten children
Witches do exist today but not old
Nor ugly hags I’ve been told

If we don’t believe will that make it go away
Never more to disturb the light of day
Oh wait, I see it clearly now
A horse lost its head and the rider his legs
