A taste for blood

She lay in bed and heard a sudden sound,
And then a wicked face appeared;
The vampire peered into her darkened room;
Her heart was thumping as he leered.

Too scared to move, she cried and prayed for help,
And heard his scratching fingernails;
The fiendish creature meant to climb inside,
And wasn’t worried by her wails.

The window opened and she grabbed her cross,
But dropped it as she trembled so;
The grinning vampire leapt on to the bed;
The virgin had no place to go.

He took a bite and sighed, ‘She’s blood group O;
The A group is much tastier you know.’

    What a fiendish end. But an inspiration for something else.
