A basilisk is a beast of fantasy lore
That can kill you with its eyes or its roar
It's a mix of a snake and a chicken, you see
And he very unfriendly

It hatches from an egg that a rooster has laid
And it grows up to be very evil and afraid
Of only one thing that can make it expire
The smell of a weasel or the crow of a sire

It can breathe out some fire or poison the air
And it leaves behind a trail of death and despair
It's the king of the serpents, or so it is told
But it's not very big, just a foot long or so

So if you ever encounter this creature of doom
Don't look in its eyes or you'll meet your tomb
Just run away fast
