Carpe Noctem

Stop drooling in your coffin
Now’s the moment... awake your beast
Satisfy your inner passion 
Arise and go out for a feast

Ditch the shroud and put the cape on
Though that might be a tad cliché 
You’ve got to look and play the part
To enjoy a neck buffet

Brush your teeth and put your fangs in
Maybe sharpen them some more
Slick your hair and curse the mirror
Grab your keys - then out the door

When you arrive at their party
Don’t leave anything to chance
Lure them in with your enigma
Play your music, make them dance

Stay alert with eyes unblinking 
Stay away from human food
If there’s garlic on the pizza
That will really spoil your mood

Pick your moment with your victims
Keep the conversation light
Then without a twitch, make the switch
With no time to flee in fright

Enjoy the warm red trickling syrup
Engorge with glee upon their dread
You’ve got to seize the night, dear
For all too soon, it’s time for bed
