AD&D Monster Manual as haiku (part 2 - B)

Here's the next part. Ah B, I was looking forward to the beholder, but it was the baluchitherium that surprised me.

Yes, this series is probably mostly useless, but they are fun to write, although this entry took longer than I expected. WAY longer.

------------------------

BABOON

one half pacifist
one half indeterminism
red ass waves goodbye


BADGER

you dig like a sow
do you even work out, brock?
your pelt looks like felt


BALUCHITHERIUM

LOOKING FOR: LOST HORN
I WILL TRAMPLE YOU FOR IT
ASK FOR "NOT RHINO"


BARRACUDA

bowman not needed
undersea ferocity
salt water arrow


BASILISK

little dragon king
you shun your own reflection
no glasses for you


BEAR

boring encounter
forests, or a grizzly cave
give papa a hug


BEAVER, Giant

this entry feels like
a predictable scene from
National Lampoon


BEETLE, Giant

hungry moving house
elemental or common
we gather feces


BEHOLDER

polyphemus, lo!
here be your galatea
twelve pupils of death


BLACK PUDDING

foul crevice seeker
no paper could collect you
darkest giant snot


BLINK DOG

daddy the pup's gone!
no wait it came back, hey pup!
no wait! oh fuck this


BOAR

pig of the sounder
juvenile, only older
everyone knows pig


BRAIN MOLE

malignant nevus
of the poor psionics mind
unbiunium


BROWNIE

handy half halfling
how is your very short sword
not just a dagger?


BUFFALO

illustrated cow
body, sepia world map
head, dark thunderstorm


BUGBEAR

just a hairy man
it is, really: goblin men
wrong taxonomy


BULETTE

monster à la carte
worcestershire demon hot sauce
damn you mad wizard


BULL

they squeezed this one in
an entry worthy its name
beware page filler
