Trying to kill some kinds of trolls can be a problem.

In the hills to the East

Was a terrible beast

That wandered from here, unto there.

It ate children over ten

And sometimes some men

If their wives were likely to share.

 

One day, late October,

The beast found some clover

And decided to have it a rest.

While the beast took to sleeping

A hunter came creeping

Then thrust a sword in its chest.

 

"Ouch!" the beast said

As it rose from its bed

Then it hit the hunter on the head.

The hunter was surprised

At the lack of demise,

He was shocked that the beast was not dead.

 

So the hunter stabbed again,

And again and again,

But the beast looked no worse for the wear.

"You're a demon, not a beast,

A ghoul in the least,

I stab but you do not care!

 

The beast took to laugh

Then divided in half

Then the parts divided some more

And it wasn't long

Before the beast was a throng

Of miniature beasts, like before.

 

Like spiders they attacked

They chewed and hacked

'til the hunter was pieces on the ground.

But the pieces that remained

Looked just the same

As the beast-parts that stood all around.

 

Then the pieces came together

Like storms in fowl weather;

A process of the darker arts.

What the hunter couldn't know

Was that a Halloween-Troll

Grows larger with available parts.
