Monster Monday: Ode to the Licker, Resident Evil 2, 1998


It’s a new year, so we’re relaunching Monster Mondays with a twist – over the next few weeks we’ll use a more creative take on the monsters of the week. Poems, stories (very short ones) and occasional critiques. So this time, it’s a poem – a short one, slightly tongue in cheek…

This week’s feature – the Licker from Resident Evil 2 in 1998. Aware that this is not the only time that the Licker has appeared in the series, but this was the first time we’d seen it and its initial impact was very significant when first playing this awesome game. Good times.

Ode to the Licker

I’m dead again
You leapt at Claire Redfield
Squish squish chomp
Strangled from above
Playing Resi2,
What a revelation you were
So scary to us
Oh Mr Licker
Your tongue is so
Drippy
I hear you sighing, feet clacking
How do you find your way
To jump out at me
When you have no eyes
And an exposed brain?
Here’s a hat
Let’s be friends?
Think I preferred
The zombies
Please.

  1. I love this! I don’t even know the game or the character but I love the irreverent sense of humor here…

    “How do you find your way

    ROTFL!! Well done. 🙂
