Meanwhile, in my belfry…

The bats are in my belfry

and behaving themselves for a change;

but, soon they will be flying out

and circling the grange

their sleek black bodies, seeking food;

shadowed against the night sky, they catch the sense of blood

as they questively fly by

and become the vampire warriors

of fiction horror fame;

calling out in a high-pitch voice

a sighing of my name.

A Gothic Tale

I was attacked by a vampire butterfly, today!

Well, I think it was a vampire butterfly – it went straight for my neck;

though I’m not sure if it bit me or not,

as I can’t see any bite marks – they could be quite a small –

but, since then I have been avoiding the Sun,

silver crucifixes,

wooden stakes

and hearing the call

of an open coffin

In a dark crypt

within a Gothic mansion.

All of this is very well,

and I was truly fine with it;

until I found out that vampire butterflies do exist!
