The Werewolf Rap (Halloween Special) - Poem by Chuck Audette

the full moon I greet
and then complete
a transition to a position
that runs on four feet

I'll attack with such speed
fight back, you've no need
lying there, dying there
every part of you bleeds

and then - so sweet
to eat raw meat
mad cow? - somehow
my system defeats

dietary blunders?
cholesterol numbers?
I'm unaware of such cares
as I rip you asunder

Feel that cool Fall air?
Love this full head of hair!
I was loathing my clothing
must've left it somewhere

Fingernails? get real!
these claws are like steel
just stick'em in my victim
and watch as they squeal

my teeth - knife blades
you've no way to evade
one last breath before death
feel your life, as it fades

three nights, such delight
'neath a moon shining bright
I scorned human form
it returns with a fight

and when I now wake
I've such longing, an ache
not arthritis or bursitis
but this life I must fake

such freedom was mine!
now I'm trapped by deadlines
rush to the bus
damn receding hairline

a working wage guy
feeling caged by this lie
hunched, grotesque at my desk
til that moon's again high

a month of torment
in this form I resent
but don't bully or berate me
cause I've got your scent!

    Chuck, methinks you've outdone yourself with this Halloween penning - bravo! ! ! Especially like 'stick 'em in my victim' and 'loathing my clothing' as well as the hair comments ('love this full head of hair' vs. 'damn this receding hairline') ! ! ! Great last stanza as well, OOO WEEE OOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! (Report) Reply

    A spine chilling piece of spooky penning. Sends shivers down the spine, a real dracula inspired poem. I think I'll double check I've locked the doors! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
