DREAMS OF A TIGER (I)
Dreams of a tiger
Dreams of a dingo, or wolf;
Fighting over you.

THE DEATH MARCH BEATING (II)
The death march beating
Keeping perfect tempo with,
The rhythm of your heart.

DEATH RITUALS
Dark rituals performed
Late one evil night, that bring
Tragedy to all.

THE GREAT RAINBOW SNAKE
A giant serpent
Coloured like a rainbow
Writhing 'cross the sky.

THE HANDS OF DEATH
The merciless grip
Of unseen hands in the dark,
Squeezing, squeezing, squeez....

THE HARBINGER OF DEATH
A harbinger of
Evil to come: announcing
Your imminent death.

THE HAUNTED NIGHT (I)
A town lost to fear,
Of dark, faceless figures that
Walk the haunted night.

HAUNTED SPECTRES (I)
Haunted spectres waiting
Inside a sunken crypt,
Howling at the night.

HEADLESS ABOMINATIONS
Headless creatures crouch
In an ancient, sunken crypt,
Hoping prey pass soon.

HIS INNERMOST MIND
The pent-up ravings
Of a madman revealing,
His innermost mind.

HORROR SLOWLY HATCHES
Horror slowly hatches
Furtively emerges, to send
Chills through our hearts.

THE HOUSE OF DARKNESS
A house of darkness
Where evil creatures wait,
For unwary callers.

HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS
House of dark shadows
Where evil waits within,
For unwary callers.

A HOUSE OF HAUNTS
A house of haunts
With an evil reputation,
Terror lurks within.

THE HOUSE OF THUNDER
Thunder clouds gather
Lightning lights up the darkness,
Round a dark old house.

HUMANS SKINNED ALIVE
Humans skinned alive
Their tanned flesh used as lamp shades,
By the Nazi fiends.

HUNTING AFTER TWILIGHT
Evil creatures slink
Through the spreading shadows, to
Hunt after twilight.

THE ILLUSION
Illusion of life
Winging through the dark gardens,
Hunting out its prey.

LET SLEEPING DRAGONS LIE
Ancient forts where
Sleeping dragons lie in wait,
For unwary callers.

A MOONLIT ALTAR
Loathsome monsters crawl
Toward a moonlit altar,
Where fallen priests chant.

MY NAME IS DEATH
I am eternal
I come to visit you all,
For my name is death.

NIGHT BEINGS
Night beings: beings
of the night. Come to visit
From some distant land.

NIGHT CREATURES LURKING (I)
Night creatures lurking
In dark shadows out of sight,
Darkfall approaches.

NIGHT DREAMS
Night dreams are the dreams
Of terror that stalks the night;
Dreams of your own death.

NIGHT EAGLES WATCHING
Night eagles winging
Just above the rooftops,
Watch your every move.

NIGHT FLYERS (I)
Night flyers sailing
Inches above the treetops,
Searching for their prey.

NIGHT GAUNTS
Night Gaunts haunt your nights
Elephantine shapes winging,
Round and round your head.

NIGHT'S EERIE BEAUTY
Night's eerie beauty
Lulls you with its charms; kills you
In only seconds.

NIGHT VISIONS BECKON
Night visions beckon
Filling your mind with terror,
Nightmares drawing near.

NIGHT VISITORS
Night visitors call
In the middle of the night,
Creeping round your room.

NIGHT WARRIORS
Night warriors fight
For control of the darkness,
Control of your dreams.

OLD HOUSE ON THE HILL (I)
A dark old mansion
Houses eerie, shrouded forms,
Evil lurks within.

A QUARTER TO
MIDNIGHT
Soon the witching hour
Will unleash untold horrors,
Into the still night.

THE QUESTING BEAST
The questing beast roams
'Cross the countryside, seeking
Knights to fight and kill.

A RED OBELISK
A red obelisk
Marked with weird hieroglyphs,
A tribute to evil.

RELENTLESS PREDATORS (I)
Your life is haunted
By predators, relentless
In their search for you.

SEAS OF MOLTEN FEAR
A morbid darkness
Descends on you, drowning you:
Seas of molten fear.

SHOGGOTHS
In the still of night
You sense danger, then you hear
Fearful shoggoths roar!

SKELETAL FINGERS
Skeletal fingers
Grasp you by the throat, squeezing
Till your life expires.

SNUFFLING IN THE DARK
Snuffling in the dark
Two large, black beasts on the scent:
Hunters stalking prey.
