Underneath the Bridge

Underneath the bridge
Where the seahorse
Swims on bubbles of molten iron
They congregate
This secret meeting place
For lovers of the night
From early afternoon they come
To watch the death throes
As the day loses the sun
The powers of the night
Now come out to flex their might
To grasp these willing acolytes
Drain them of their fear and fight
Feed until they reach the sweet centre
Of souls unwanted
In day’s natural light
The chosen few will rise
From makeshift sepulchres
Underneath this bridge
Of blood thirsting sighs
Soon the vampire army
Will take to the skies
Ranks swelled with so many discarded
Dearly so recently departed
Leaving not a trace of death behind
Underneath the bridge
Where the seahorse
Swims on bubbles of molten iron
