Late one lonely night
Unsuspecting innocents,
Stroll the baneful streets
Blind to malignant evil,
Death creeping ever closer.

Midnight callers creep
Through a dark, lonely bedroom,
Unwary sleepers
Wake to discover horrors,
Moving slowly toward them.

Night evil beckons
Tall, hooded strangers shamble
Through dark, lonely streets;
Unsuspecting strangers wait
As death creeps ever nearer.

Evil children prowl
Through the
midnight alleyways
Darkness is their home;
Unsuspecting adults walk,
Up to the deadly urchins.

The odour of death
Wafting along in the breeze,
Predators stalking
Through the moonlight, waiting for
Unsuspecting passers-by.

Midnight breezes howling
Sound like unseen carnivores,
Nervous people hide
From unseen dangers without,
Blind that danger lurks within.
