The Time is Near

Moon Jack O'Lantern Bat skeleton Cat Dragon Beckoning Skull
The time is near
when night will fall,
the sun to rise no more.

The banshee’s scream
will fill the air,
and vampire bats will soar.

Ghouls will creep
through graveyards dark
and flood the streets with gore.

Warlocks and witches
will dance the Black Mass
and cackle with fiendish cheer.

Monsters and ogres of
hideous mien
through darkened windows will peer.

The stalking cat will
rule the night,
and Man will hide in fear.

Prepare yourself
for the horror of doom.
Remember, the time is near!
