DEATH CREEPS UP ON YOU (14/05/2021)
Death creeps up on you,
Even as you think you're safe,
Soon all life has gone.

Death shadowed soldiers
Keep marching off to their doom,
In this endless war.

An evil genie
Thralling by granting wishes;
That always backfires.

Ominous funeral drums
Signalling their deaths.

Live just for today.

NEVER-ENDING BATTLES (14/05/2021)
Brave soldiers fallen
In never-ending battles,
None can ever win.

Panic in the night;
Evil too great to mention,
Loping through the woods.

NIGHTMARES ARE WAITING (14/05/2021)
Nightmares are waiting
For a chance to escape,
Into the living world.

NIGHTMARES DESCEND (II)
Night-time descends then
Nightmares take over, to
Cruelly torment your mind.

Evil night ravens
Tormenting throughout the night;
Harbingers of doom.

Night visions beckon
Filling your mind with terror,
Nightmares drawing near.

Night visitors call
In the middle of the night,
Creeping round your room.

NIGHT WARRIORS
Night warriors fight
For control of the darkness,
Control of your dreams.

Evil figures crouch
In the deep shadows, and
Watch your every move.

NIGHT WINDS
Eerie, howling winds
So ghostly in their moaning,
Haunting in the night.

OMENS OF DEATH
Omens speak of death
In some far off time and place,
Terror on the way.

OUR FEATHERED FIENDS
Horny, razor-edged beaks
On massive misshapen heads,
Bird things from Hell.

THE PREACHER
Satan is looking for
A very special soul:
A preacher this time!

PREHISTORIC MONSTERS
Huge, misshapen heads
On prehistoric monsters,
Crawling from a swamp.

PROMISES! PROMISES! (21/03/2009)
Evil promises
Made in the black of night,
By Satan's messengers.

THE PURSUIT
On the edge of blind panic
You flee through the woods,
With death in pursuit.

A QUARTER TO MIDNIGHT
Soon the witching hour
Will unleash untold horrors,
Into the still night.

QUASI-MAN
A hideous face
Rough-hewn and barely human;
With long, shark-like teeth.

THE QUESTING BEAST
The questing beast roams
‘Cross the countryside, seeking
Knights to fight and kill.

RAGE (21/03/2009)
Salty tears of rage
Crippling your better judgment,
Driving you to kill.

RAGING FURY
A powerful arm
Lashing out in livid rage,
Fury feeding hate.

RAGNAROK
Unseen evil roams
Across lightless continents
After ragnarok.

RECURRING NIGHTMARES
Recurring nightmares
Of fiends you can’t bear,
Tearing out your insides.

A RED OBELISK
A red obelisk
Marked with weird hieroglyphs,
A tribute to evil.

RELEASE (21/03/2009)
Cries of great fear
Souls lost forever to torment,
Pleading for release.

RELENTLESS PREDATORS (I)
Your life is haunted
By predators, relentless
In their search for you.

RELENTLESS TORMENT
Relentlessly
Your dreams are tormenting you;
Showing you no mercy.

REVELATIONS OF DEATH
Your horoscope tells
Of rapidly approaching danger;
Death is drawing near.

REVELRY IN HELL
Gibbering fiends prance
Round cauldrons where sinners boil,
Paying for past crimes.

ROAMING SPECTRES
Roaming spectres search
Through the deserted night streets,
People are their prey.

ROARING WINDS (14/05/2021)
Winds that roar like beasts
Throughout the vacuum of space,
Between galaxies.

ROILING DEATH
Roiling, tiny waves
As small as tiny cat hairs,
Bringing silent death!

ROVING DEAD MONSTERS
Roving dead monsters
More fearsome than live killers,
Nothing can harm them.

RUN! (21/03/2009)
Evil all about
Warning signs of disaster,
Telling you to run!

A SACRED VOW TO SLANDER
“Slander your neighbour
To any extent required,”
By the brotherhood.

SAM HAINE’S MIDNIGHT RIDE
Warning signs of evil
Dead and dying join in,
Sam Haine’s midnight ride.

SATAN’S LEGIONS
Satan’s legions stand
Silently nearby,
Rejoicing in your terror.

SATAN’S MESSENGERS
Satan’s messengers
Fly by night, to do his bidding;
Haunting your dreams.

SCALY ABOMINATIONS
Scaly abominations
Slowly crawl forth from,
Primordial swamps.

THE SCARLET TERROR
The scarlet terror
Circling ever closer,
Hunting out the living.

SEAS OF MOLTEN FEAR
A morbid darkness
Descends on you, drowning you:
Seas of molten fear.

SHOGGOTHS
In the still of night
You sense danger, then you hear
Fearful shoggoths roar!

SHOGGOTHS CLAWING
Shoggoths are clawing
At your eyes, at your throat,
Is it only a dream?

SKELETAL DANCERS
Skeletal dancers
In mouldy rags, waltz to
A broken old record.

SYMPHONY OF DESTRUCTION (14/05/2021)
Horrible wailing
Symphony of destruction
Ringing round the world.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE BRING? (14/05/2021)
Today is near gone
Tomorrow's not quite here,
What does the future bring?
