Vampire poem

Okay, so I want to make a whole book of monster poems for my kids (I like good Halloween books!).  I've already written a few.  Here's the first, which I wrote as an undergraduate:

The Tale of the Hungry Vampire
Biting a neck isn’t all that much fun
It’s messy, it’s crude, and it leads to the shun-
ning of most folk
when you really crave Coke
And honey and cake
Fangs are a mistake

On chocolate I brood
I’m not in the mood
For more dark thick blood
Masquerading as food

This poem is dedicated to Cadbury Mini Eggs, which taste far too good, and deviled eggs with dye on the whites, which is what we turned our Easter creations into...
