For Halloween contest

In A Dark, Dark Room Tormented in a dark, dark room-- Smelling the foulness in the ground; Flickering shadows in the gloom That feed upon me, all around Bound hand and foot, with neck exposed, Tormented in a dark, dark room, I only slept, when coffins closed, With nightmares of impending doom. I heard above a muffled boom My eyes assaulted by the light Tormented in a dark, dark room Never more will I fear the night I signed on with Van Helsings Free, Hunting vampires from tomb to tomb. I rescue others, lost like me-- Tormented in a dark, dark room

I guess the grave-robbers dug this up for Halloween. Have to think of a new poem for next month--maybe something about cannibal morticians.

Halloween is fun to write about. Much more freer to leave the ties of reality and plausibility.
