A/N: Spoiler Alert
Let me start out by saying that I don’t get horror.
Why would you pay someone to scare you? Why spend your (more or less) hard-earned pay-check to be utterly disgusted by what’s in front of you?
If you’re like me, you might even close your eyes, and now you’re effectively paying money for looking at the inside of your own eyelid. Crazy, right? I don’t care for blood. I don’t care for gore. I don’t care for cannibalism, or being grossed out, or men and women being made into a human centipede. Ugh.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I know that a lot of people adore horror. Otherwise, the statement on Stephen King’s bank account would have looked a lot different. Horror just isn’t for me. At least not when it’s found on the screen.

Scream, scream. Off with his head!
A/N: We have some weird traditions here in Denmark…
I tried a chapter,
And I quickly gave up.
So I went for a page
… still couldn’t back it up.
Perhaps a paragraph
Is the way to go?
I quickly discover
That the answer is no.
But a single sentence.
Success! (if but small).
And a little is far more
Than nothing at all.
Just such a lovely poem that I felt that I needed to share it 😀
A clock irate,
A teacup chipped,
The candelabra, he connives.
The beast, he fought,
But so did they,
The stuff that came alive.
