The Howling


The howling was not invented by Hollywood gods

no romance in the bones of dead walking

no teenagers with hearts throbbing

just ask those living in the streets

or those of us

with nightmares singing.


Fortunately for all of us

there are those bearing the sacred sword

and for them werewolves are nothing –

but sword practice, as they move

with the strength

of eternity.

      1. Dogs howling at the moon is always fun, it’s when they growl at people that it’s not fun, but this a growl not a howl. 🙂

  1. I often think of this when bombarded by the many “living dead” programs. There are challenges greater than those posed by the “living dead”. They just aren’t memorialized in video games.
