The validation of monsters

by mudrhetoric

My feelings were allayed
When my mother told me that monsters were real
I had always felt this was so
But I lacked empirical validation
Some might say I still lack
My mother says otherwise
She has entrusted me with the protection of the realm
Knighted, in service
To combat those monsters
Who dare to cross the threshold
The room smells of lavender
As its distilled essence penetrates their flesh
Their screams resound and stick to the walls
Standing as a memorial for those monsters to come
Those uninitiated to the dream
