Mythical Creature: Yara-Ma-Yha-Who Origin: Australia
Have you heard of the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who?
the one who lurks and spies on you?
Beware your next visit to the land down under
a country well known for deadly animalia.
High up the gnarly branches of the majestic fig tree
the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who waits and watches youngsters with glee.
Its eyes are sharp searching for prey
its meal was the child who went missing yesterday.
How do you make sure it is never you?
listen to your elders “be in bed by seven twenty two.”
Don’t be fooled by its small size and frog like features
for the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who is a terrible creature.
He will put even Count Dracula to shame
compared to the Yara-Ma-Yha-Who, all other vampires seem tame.
Slimy red skin and gross sucker limbs
once he ingests you, you will turn into him.
He will eat you up then spit you out
over and over without a doubt.
Til your limbs turn to suckers and your skin goes red
then it will be you, lurking high in the shadows of the fig tree instead. ~ Fam Zsolti
