in werewolves dark and furry?
in banshees, beasties, pointy pixies,
ghosts who go all blurry?
Do you believe in unicorns?
in vampires tall and smiling?
in witches, wizards, druids’ blizzards,
wood-nymphs so beguiling?
Are you in fact an alien?
a monster green and pimply?
a freak, a fright, a barrow-wight,
a corpse whose limbs lie limply?
If so then go to meet your friends
across the cold black river
perhaps they’ll kiss your bloodless lips
