Trifecta Challenge Beast


 He growls and he is near

He’s just below, I fear.

 He rumbles and he churns;

sensational, his yearns.

But  just a simple plea

from the tummy monster

for a hot-fudge sundae

Time for another Trifecta Challenge! Here’s the prompt: Thirty years ago, Roald Dahl published the book Dirty Beasts, a collection of poems for children about weird and wonderful animals. The last poem, however, is called The Tummy Beast about a boy who thinks there’s someone living in his belly. Your Trifextra challenge is to write 33 words on a beast in an unusual place. No swamps or forests or caves, we really want you to take your beast out of its comfort zone.

      Sorry, you’re on a diet. Just thinking about it adds a couple of pounds!
