The Last Centaur for Centaur Poetry Contest

The Last of the Centaurs

The last of the centaurs
Lived deep in the forest
Lost in time and space
To the outside world.

The centaur dreamed
That one day
He would escape his imprisonment
And return to the world.

Taking his rightful role
As the king of the animals
And ruler of humanity.

One day Sam Adams
A paranormal researcher
Discovered the Centaur’s
Secret lair.

The Centaur and Sam Adams
Agreed to bring him back
The centaur appeared
On all the talk shows

Became a huge star
Ran for office

The supreme court
Declared that he
Would be considered human
And cleared him to run
For office

Became President
The United States

He launched a campaign
To clone centaurs
And other lost animals

And soon there were many
Centaurs and other creatures
Running about the world.

The centaur smiled
He was so glad to be back
Among the living.

last year's winning enry

"the Conquering Centaurs Return"

Sam Adams
Was a paranormal researcher
He was searching
For mystical creatures
That he was sure
Still existed somewhere.

Thousands of years ago
There were many
other creatures.

On this planet
Sadly many disappeared
With the rise of humanity.

Some lived on in legend
And myth.

The banshees, bigfoot, the centaurs,
the demons, the dragons, the giants,
The hellhounds, the minitours, the leprechauns.
The snowmen, the unicorns, and Yeti.

Sam Adams
Found a book
The legendary infamous

Which many had dismissed
As nothing but a story
By Lovecraft and his fellow
Demented writers .

But Sam knew the truth
The book would open
Other dimensions
Part of the multi-verse.

Allowing the ancient creatures
To come back to our world.

He opened the door
The first through
Was the King of the Centaurs.

He brought with him
Thousands of his followers
Who launched a war
Against the modern world.

The Centaur and his army
Quickly overwhelmed the world
Appointed Sam Adams
As their ambassador,

The Centaur smiled
At his victory
It had been a long time
Living in exile
In the other dimensions.
