Garlic and Crucifixes

blood moon summer
on the grass
teeth marks on the pen

A rash of unexplained murders have filled up police reports, newspaper headlines, and television news programs. The economy seems to be improving. The sale of garlic and crucifixes alone have kept the country afloat. Sightings of bats, Dracula, or the Chupacabras have been minimal. This is why it all seems so strange. But no one is taking things for granted. People walk in groups. Some have purchased neck braces, but that is silly because those murdered by the full moon biter have been bitten in the ass.
