There once was a vamp named Vachon
Who was known not for brains nor for brawn
In fact, he was quite lazy
But he drove the girls crazy
With his long hair that was just clip-on
There was a poor lass known as Urs
Who felt her mortal life was a curse
Said she wished to be dead
Ended up vamped instead
But we're glad she did-- Hello, cute nurse!
A general from ancient Rome
Tried to give his kid a warm, safe home
She became his vamp-mother
Wanted to be his lover
But he couldn't-- they shared a genome!
There once was a carouche named Screed
Who thought he did the world a good deed
'Cause he ate rats and mice
But he never thought twice
That exterminators disagreed

These were the result of a "character limerick" challenge on the
FORKNI-L list. All of them were written late at night, while I was
loopy. Combine that with my already-bad poetry skills, and you'll
maybe understand why they're so painful to read :-P . Fun to write,
though. . .
