Vampire Killer Starter Pack

My house is right next to a graveyard and consequently when the moon is full, and the dogs start howling I often hear strange scratchings and scufflings and the room temperature drops until I can see my breath. Last year, with Halloween just round the corner,  I decided it was time to order a Vampire Killer Starter Pack.

Vampire Killer Starter Pack

I’ve got my Vampire Killer Starter Pack
Straight to my door, there’s no going back.
I’ve got my:
Garlic – to be worn in cloves or eaten in
copious quantities before the horror begins.
If the vamp’s get up close and far too personal,
Huffffffff all over ’em.
Stakes, wooden – come in packs of six.
Cross, Star or Crescent – depending on your
religious inclination – if inclined.
Crow-bar – to lever open coffin lids.
Night-sight goggles for down in the crypt.
See them before they see you!
Water, holy – in three shades of blessed persuasion.
Priest, Imam or Rabbi.
And if hope turns to despair down in the vampire’s lair,
If the going gets rough…..get going!
With an ultralightweightpair of running shoes.
Best of luck and ‘fangs’ for your patronage.
