Epoché














Epoché (Loch Ness Monster) 10/7

Saint Columba is walking in Scotland

And there ahead – a funeral by the river

      How did this youth die?

      He was swimming the river – the beast
      came up and chased him down – dragged
      him under

      Was there nothing you could do?

      We chased after in a boat and threw a line
      he came up in two pieces – bloodied
      a foot fell off in the boat

      I will see for myself

Saint Columba sent Luigne into the water

And there – the beast rose up and chased him

From the shore – Cloumba signed the cross

      Go no further – do not touch the man – go back at once

And as if hooked – tied to the water

The beast sank below – vanished – and was quiet
