get any candy.

Lovecraftian Horror

Lovecraftian Horror

 

The oppression, alas, is intense!
After numerous shocking events,
The results just aren’t fair.
There is no Devil there—
But the void left behind is immense.

Listen closer to
the music of the spheres:
you’ll hear cacophony.

Wicked Prophets

Wicked Prophets

 

The wicked prophets whisper of destruction.
To many mortals, that sounds really good.
They dream of death. They long for their induction
Into Cthulhu’s cultic neighborhood.
They’d hasten his arrival if they could—
But they are told, predictably, to wait.
The orgiastic Deep Ones, as they should,
Sing of dark pleasures normal hearts would hate.
The Elder Gods are not controlled by Fate.
Rather, they carry out their age-old plans.
Ah, what a vain and temporary state,
According to their order, now is man’s!
One short stint past, eternally we die.
I myself hope the wicked prophets lie.

Proof of Sale

Proof of Sale

 

With a skeptical air, news whores greet
Evidence that Slow Joe is replete
With vast payoffs from Xi.
China bought Joe, you see:
Hunter’s e-mails provide the receipt.

Strong Leadership

Strong Leadership

 

Vote Biden if you want strong leadership!
Vote Biden – and be ruled by Chairman Xi!
Submit to leadership of CCP!
Those guys are strong and don’t shoot from the hip!
Once they’re in charge, they won’t take any lip.
People in Hong Kong got a chance to see
Xi’s power, firmness, and sagacity.
Vote for Xi here and he will let her rip!
Or, well, vote Biden! That is what we meant.
Biden is strong man, too. Today are few
As strong as Joe, as clever, as intent
On serving greater good. Take Chicom cue
And make Election Day a Joe event!
He’ll do great things – for Xi will tell him to!

Scientific Methods

 

Mina suffered vampiric infection.
(Genius was not required for detection.)
By hypnosis was found
The Count’s brain to hers bound.
Did Van Helsing consider dissection?

The word “flabbergast,” of course, contains the root “ghast” – that is, the Northumbrian or Scots root corresponding to Standard English “ghost.” The exact derivation of the whole word is uncertain, but, if you’re flabbergasted, you can be sure that something ghostly is happening to you.

THE GHOST OF BIDEN’S BRAIN….

LOVE POEMS OF A HATEMONGER….

Heart’s Fastness

Heart’s Fastness

 

You lay in wait for what scared others silly.
Your mighty hand attended Grendel’s grip.
In kennings, even oceans can be hilly.
You lay in weight – for what scared others silly
Troubled you not at all. Spread terror, will he?
You whispered in heart’s fastness. What a trip!
You lay in wait for what scared others silly.
Your mighty hand attended Grendel’s grip.

 

–Tom Riley

LOVE POEMS OF A HATEMONGER – the collection of virtuoso poems that lovers love to hate but readers merely love – is now FREE at Amazon!

Nor does LOVE POEMS OF A HATEMONGER lack a Halloween connection. No, indeed! It’s got death goddesses and murderous maenads! It’s got witches who butcher their own flesh and blood!
