Horror is in my veins,
My mind is curiously inspirited by it,
The realm of cannibals and clowns and slashers,
Machetes and bowies and hooks,
Hockey masks and fedoras and faces of foreign flesh,

My psyche adores these monsters in an oddball fashion,
The heavy breathing behind an icons mask fills me with elation,
A bladed glove cuts portraits into my imagination,
The screams of youths as they flee the dark,
The craving roar of a chainsaw sends my pulse a-skipping,

I’m a cut and dry adherent of terror,
My mind wanders to haunted abodes and slaughterhouses,
To witness the chases and executions,
My heart pounding in time with the footfalls,
And the knife strikes on flesh,

To me those icons of horror are atop pedestals,
You may think me a dreadful ghoul,
They are not heroes to me of course,
I am not so deranged as that,
But they candidly set my cortices afire,

They send my imagination horrifically squirming.
