Hood over his head, drowning in sound,
Pen in hand - thoughts scream him down.
He comforts himself that the Nightmares he's fed
Are safer on paper than left in his head.

The Zombie Broodmother, the Arms from Below-
Two of the countless, grim horrors he knows-
Like crazed Scizzor Jim and the Lonesome Field Thane;
What trauma upon the world they could bring!

He frantically jots each name and their origin
And how one may end them, with in-depth description.
He's running out of time - he's clawing his face!
If he finishes soon, it won't be too late!

Hand-from-Mouth Girl, the Geist of Doneer,
The Forest Called Pathos, and Man with the Shear;
For all them and more no detail was spared,
Even for Timmy and his one-eyed bear.

At last only one of the Eldritch remained,
And on the last page he wrote down the name.
He warned it's release would summon the others,
And then, with a sigh, joined along in their numbers.
