A very early poem (as you can tell), written when I was about 15 or 16.

A fever grips your mind
Your dreams are truly vile:

A severed hand, still alive
A changeling:
Wolfman by full moon;
The creature from
The black lagoon.
Blue beard sporting
A gleaming knife;
To slaughter yet another wife.
Vampires changing to bats
Then crawl round the floor as rats.
The headless horseman
And his fiery black steed;
Are riding out
Across the reeds.

A gargoyle
Yes, and Captain Gore;
The talons of the giant claw;
Swooping down then
Eating humans raw.
