Dá fhada an lá tagann an tráthnóna.

(No matter how long the day, evening comes)

I am always hungry

never satiated, craving more.

Dead or alive, doesn’t matter

I’ll consume it all blindly.

I’m the purest form of democracy.


People flee from me in terror

Even fables were written about me,

I’m Frankenstein’s one true weakness.


They fear me.

Yet the solution to their monsters

were to brandish me in their disfigured faces.


I’m more vile than the monsters they created.

More evil than their subconscious fears

But I guess you know what they say


Fight fire with fire.

I wrote this on a whim, I'm trying to get better at personifying nature. I'd love feedback on how to improve!
