is to begin."

But stories we've got."

What happens
when a vampire bites you?
That's right:
you become a vampire too.

And when zombies attack
they turn you
into one of them.

Back in the day
when country rubes
were sold the Brooklyn Bridge
(dreaming of the tolls they'd collect)
the only way
to make it pay
was to sell it to some
newer rube.

we oft become
what conquers us;
They say that
we come to
resemble our enemy.

So what rules are you enforcing,
that were unhappily forced
on you?

And what did you hate
that now you perpetuate?

What is it you swallowed whole
that now you wish
you never ate?

Be happy friend
and celebrate,
the spell is broken:
A mere disguise
and not your
ALOHA, cloudia
