A symphony of Horror

A Modern Tale

A symphony of Horror,

Bare naked in my coffin.

Covid infected the taste of my brekfast.


Dear Diáry,

Evry ting smells like pleather,

Frigid chills in the boots of my leather.


Glacial flurries fall off the drapes of old carcasses


Hoomans don come around, not even the students.

“I am now ancient ruins”


Jigsaw dreams of my vintage

Killings; has not seen infection like tis since



My quarters are full of bat dung,

Nevr’ze less,

“Ode to Nosferatu” the song my ancestors once sung.


Preserving my corpse, as my grave turneth;

Quickly they will mount my skull above ze’furnace.


Riots thrashing down the doors to my lair,

Soon, my castle will be a muzeum,

Two-tousand en twenty four jeers later.


Un-hinged and

Vexed wit hunger


Werewolves boo their who and hoomans do too.

Xanax for their panic, and service tags for their blues.


Yellow fever wasn’t even as bad, now I feast

ze’ blood of ze’ knats.

    So modern mixed in with the dark ages. All combined to wreak havoc. I see a movie in the making.

    Perfect picture of the plagues that mankind has witnessed....and the incredible way your character speaks with such an eerie accent. Wow! So well done!!

    Thought this was absolutely cracking.

  • Whimsically & delightfully horrific, Natasha. Loved the dialect.
