The Ballad of Bloodsucker Bill

For Halloween…..




In a castle atop

Of a far away hill

Rests a vampire

Name of Bloodsucker Bill


He sleeps with the lid

Of his coffin sealed tight

To ward off the rays

Of the sun’s deadly light


But as shadows of night

To his sepulcher spill

They awaken dark cravings

In Bloodsucker Bill


He throws on his cloak

And ties his cravat

And brushes the lint

From his satin top hat


Then it’s into the streets

In search of a thrill

The night time is show time

For Bloodsucker Bill


He preys only on ladies

The men leave him cold

His approach is a mixture

Of subtle and bold


He’s quite a seducer

They bend to his will

Resistance is futile

With Bloodsucker Bill


He plies them with dinner

And later a show

He flatters them ‘til

Their cheeks are aglow


Its wine ‘em and dine ‘em

Then in for the kill

That’s standard procedure

For Bloodsucker Bill


He’s charming, he’s sexy

He kindles desire

The touch of his lips

Spark a passionate fire


“When you live twenty lifetimes

You acquire some skill”

Says that old bodice-ripper

Named Bloodsucker Bill


So caution fair ladies

Who tryst in the night

Beware a cloaked stranger

Who seems to delight


He’ll first take his pleasure

Then drink up his fill

And you’ll join the victims

Of Bloodsucker Bill
