The Unicorn

Last year I did OU course A215 – Creative Writing, which had a poetry element. I hated it and consequently sucked at it. The below is one third of that submission, essentially a silly exercise in meter. The only reason I even submitted it was to make up the required line count. I know how terrible it is, but I may as well dump it here.

The Unicorn

The aryan unicorn,
Proud of its virginal white,
A gentle beacon of hope,
With it’s prominent symbol
Of healing and heraldry.

But look! Do not be deceived!
Look in its devious eyes;
At it’s cruel and vicious horn.
Observe its chosen victims:
Virgins, the sick, the hopeless.
