Haiku of Horror #51

HAIKU OF HORROR now have their own site. If you, like no one else on earth, find tiny little awful poems terrifying, be sure to check it out. 

As a teen, I was a big fan of the ’96 adaptation of The Island of Dr. Moreau. I owned it on VHS, back before those were things people purchased as novelties, and watched it on an embarrassingly regular basis. And to think, I used to be a real cinema snoot. Turns out, I was just an idiot.

Here’s a poem.

Dreams are feral beasts
Caged and tamed, they grow subdued
Becoming like men

Anyway, here’s a poem about it…

Lie back; close your eyes; drift away
Soon, they’ll come calling
