Cora Pearl's Strange Encounter

Last night came knocking at my door

The oddest thing I ever saw

Three eyes of orange long hair of blue

Nothing like it in Grimney Zoo

Instead of hands it had big hooks

Which did nothing to assist its looks

Short in body big in head

The sight of it filled me with dread

It was so bad I felt quite sure

That I quickly shut and locked the door

It was so grim and smelt so dire

It must have come from Grimney mire

But now I know I will not find out

What that thing was all about 

Perhaps one day I will meet another  

Although Heaven forbid that it has a brother
