Nov PAD Chapbook Challenge Day 20 – ‘They Came from the Lagoon’

blacklagoonjpg

Today’s prompt was to write a poem using at least three, or all of the following six words:

  • relent
  • horrendous
  • artifact
  • lagoon
  • wobble
  • plunder

Quite an interesting mix, I’m sure you’ll agree! Pleasingly, I was able to use all 6 – I’ll leave it to you to see what you think of the result…

They Came From the Lagoon


Over sandy dunes
And under lagoons
Lies little creatures
Too horrendous to name.

There are no treasures to plunder
Or shiny artifacts to find,
Only clammy claws and tentacles
That will drag you to doom.

It does no good to squirm
For the monsters do not relent,
Devouring each foolish being
Who felt the urge to explore.

To look at them is pure horror,
Made of jelly and slimy scales,
They wobble in such a wretched way
That you’ll welcome your sorry fate.
