The Wendigo

by Ogden Nash (with a bracelet by me)

The Wendigo,
The Wendigo!
Its eyes are ice and indigo!


Photobucket

Its blood is rank and yellowish!
Its voice is hoarse and bellowish!
Its tentacles are slithery,
And scummy,
Slimy,
Leathery!


Photobucket

Its lips are hungry blubbery,
And smacky,
Sucky,
Rubbery!


Photobucket

The Wendigo,
The Wendigo!
I saw it just a friend ago!


Photobucket

Last night it lurked in Canada;
Tonight, on your veranada!


Photobucket

As you are lolling hammockwise
It contemplates you stomachwise.


Photobucket

You loll,
It contemplates,
It lollops.
The rest is merely gulps and gollops.

You very own wendigo... in orange and indigo.
