A Question of Holabeards!
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Who has seen an Ogabean?
Neither I nor you! Their eyes were
Piercing red, their big wings blue,
And all the rest of them was green!
When they were hungry, always they went,
Their looks could make a hero scream,
With only this redeeming grace:
They were so ugly they were funny.
But the plain truth is, they were mean!
They preyed most unkindly
On all the other animals by the streams,
But they absolutely had to halve Holabeards!
Those were creatures a tenth their size,
Well described as looking quite weird.
Their backs were yellow, their stomachs black,
And all over covered with quills
Like porcupines, to guard against attack.
Under their pointed noses grew their orange beards.
For these long, eye-catching beards they were revered
By all the sages of the land Chanachill.
Sadly for the Holabeards, the Ogabeans,
As smart as they were over the generations, got a nack
For bypassing those shields of quills!
One after another, they got torn in half,
Caught off guard in the streams while taking baths.
It stayed okay in the inexorable laws
Of the Ogabeans, so they kept on devouring,
And drinking their purple blood through lavender straws,
Always lavender by custom!
Is this chronicle getting too gory?
I let you end the story!
