Encounter with a Beast

by Ankita Ghoshal

Once I saw a pit which was shallow,

And inside it was sitting a buffalo!

Oh! I suddenly shouted with fear,

When I saw his nose, like the horn of a deer.

His mouth was as small as an iron screw,

And yuck! he was drinking from a bottle of glue.

He had a really ugly face,

In fact, his whole appearance was quite strange!

Suddenly he said, “Oh please! have mercy on me;

Please my dear, do save me.”

And though I knew how dangerous he might be,

I felt that I should set him free.

Looking around me, I saw a long rope,

And that gave me some hope.

Finally, I was able to set him free;

“HURRAY!” he shouted with joy and glee.

Everything was going on quite well,

But suddenly I saw that his face fell:

“I am hungry and I have to eat meat;

Please don’t mind but I will eat you as a treat!”

And before I knew it, I found that I was dead;

Just then, I woke up and fell from the bed!

I was shouting, crying and screaming;

Thank God! I had only been dreaming!
