Fickle Muses an online journal of myth and legend
By James B. Nicola
Remember, if you’ve come upon this note
And wish to work the maze to claim the prize,
That there’s a monster girded by this moat
Who's slain about a hundred other guys.
But if you will not fight, and even die
For me, although I much prefer you kill,
Then I would just as soon you pass me by—
But pass this on to someone else who will.
“Locust” by Jeff Foster
