Gored and Manor

His castle sits 'top of its mount,
And his vassals spout blood like a fount
He's a cross 'twixt a bat
And an aristocrat
First class, but an absolute count.

David Cairns

Bela Lugosi is that blood-sucking Transylvanian royal, Dracula (Tod Browning, 1931). This is only the first of many Vampire Weekends. For much more on the incorrigible count, visit  Monster Mania.

What rhymes with...

Above, I'm a bat in the hunt
I hover, then flap down in front
Of the beautiful lass
I've pursued to harass --
The loverly Emily Blunt.

Ah, Loverly Emirly!
