Banshee

I approach at a distance to make you unaware,
you will not catch me however hard you stare,
a wolf in sheep’s clothing, a chameleon disguise,
figments in your mind of fire and sea and skies.

Too small to be detected, vaporous to be ignored,
I stalk my newest prey to slay with sharpened sword,
an invisible assassin with masquerade and lies,
phantoms dwelling in your head creating fear within your eyes.

A druid call can summon me, secret spells arcane,
unleash my wrath and you will find that my shriek will be your bane.
With a grinning Judas kiss and chameleon disguise,
my phantoms dwell inside your head crashing fire and sea and skies.
