"It's getting dark, better light the cadles quick!
Lock the Door and grab your crucifix!
A prayer won't save you tonight,
Nor garlic from Dracula's bite.
Evil lurks within your shadows, embrace the light,
Make it your refuge at midnight.
A goblet of your sorrow is enough to live through tomorrow.
Don't let your fear see your eyes,
Hope that you will see the sun rise... "
"Ere the birth of my life, if I wished it or no
No question was asked me--it could not be so !
If the life was the question, a thing sent to try
And to live on be YES; what can NO be ? to die.
Is't returned, as 'twas sent ? Is't no worse for the wear ?
Think first, what you ARE ! Call to mind what you WERE !
I gave you innocence, I gave you hope,
Gave health, and genius, and an ample scope,
Return you me guilt, lethargy, despair ?
Make out the invent'ry ; inspect, compare !
Then die--if die you dare !"
