The Ballad of Bloodsucker Bill


For Halloween…..

x

x

x

In a castle atop

Of a far away hill

Rests a vampire

Name of Bloodsucker Bill

x

He sleeps with the lid

Of his coffin sealed tight

To ward off the rays

Of the sun’s deadly light

x

But as shadows of night

To his sepulcher spill

They awaken dark cravings

In Bloodsucker Bill

x

He throws on his cloak

And ties his cravat

And brushes the lint

From his satin top hat

x

Then it’s into the streets

In search of a thrill

The night time is show time

For Bloodsucker Bill

x

He preys only on ladies

The men leave him cold

His approach is a mixture

Of subtle and bold

x

He’s quite a seducer

They bend to his will

Resistance is futile

With Bloodsucker Bill

x

He plies them with dinner

And later a show

He flatters them ‘til

Their cheeks are aglow

x

Its wine ‘em and dine ‘em

Then in for the kill

That’s standard procedure

For Bloodsucker Bill

x

He’s charming, he’s sexy

He kindles desire

The touch of his lips

Spark a passionate fire

x

“When you live twenty lifetimes

You acquire some skill”

Says that old bodice-ripper

Named Bloodsucker Bill

x

So caution fair ladies

Who tryst in the night

Beware a cloaked stranger

Who seems to delight

x

He’ll first take his pleasure

Then drink up his fill

And you’ll join the victims

Of Bloodsucker Bill
