What an interesting creature, the rare Halganic,
a bit like a fairy, but tall and less quick.
They have blue fire eyes numbering nine hundred and nine,
which seems a bit silly when you consider they’re blind.
They have thirty five feet they don’t use for a thing,
since they fly everyplace on black leathery wings.
They have terrible fangs and sharp mandibles,
but given a thimble of water they’re full.
I don’t quite understand what a Halganic’s for,
but they’re building a nest right outside of your door.

I'm a software engineer who likes to write. So I should do that more.
