The Thing about Loch Ness Monsters

I seek to cure what’s deep inside
Frightened of this thing that I’ve become.
~Africa by Toto

Because it lurks
deep beneath the surface
but as any good local legend
lends itself to the truth
Nessie will rear her ugly head
from time to time
penetrating the surface
ever so quickly
that witnesses who claim
to have seen the beast
begin to question not their eyes
but the beast’s motives.
