A beast of the air

A beast of the night, a terror by day
Dreaded by people, feared by her prey
A Goddess in form, with the wings of a bat
She has lust in her eyes and the teeth of a cat
Men from the village, claim encounters at night
With a beautiful stranger, that filled them with fright
Though they were fearful they would never refrain
From travelling the same routes at night once again
This beast of the night can kill on a whim
But there’s something about it that attracts every him!
