 What tales can you conceive?

You writers of make believe,

You forgers of finely crafted fable.

Will there be dragons with snake-like skin,

And shinning armored men

Drinking ale, at some mighty king's table?

 

Will you divert inquiring minds

To more recent times,

To a love, so sadly gone astray?

Or will a Space Alien meeting

Prove too fleeting,

So you take us to places far away?

 

Will your Vampire be the same

And play the same old game,

Changing to a bat for evening flight?

Or will his wife call him Hubby

And will he be a little chubby;

Working at a blood-bank late at night?

 

Could a more humorous tale

Set its colorful sail

And launch into an ocean full of fun?

A little ditty, joyful delight,

To read late some night

When the tests of the day are rightly done.

 

Will the Phantoms of the ages

Receive bloody wages

In those halls of drama, dark and cold?

Shall the love of a woman

Be destroyed by an Omen

From a jealous witch, wrinkled and old?

 

Whatever it is, you write,

Make it your hearts delight

And never add those things you don't allow.

It is your tale to weave

About that place, make-believe;

Which might be better than where we are now.
