Nessie’s keep

Nessie’s keep (March-04-2019)

Call it what you wish but not Nessie
Or Bessie
Not even Jessie

Could you pat its head?
Hug its long neck?
Or ride its arched back?

It ate children and adults alike
Sheep and cattle when it liked
Fear what beneath the surface lurks
Pay attention to what roils the murk

It is the kraken of the deep
It is leviathan of the keep
Watch your footing lest you slip
