Bite Makes Right

You can sprout great long canines for biting
Without doubt draining veins is exciting
But some find it wiser
To grind their incisors
Spouting gore makes for stains uninviting.

Max Schreck's Nosferatu had two rat-like central fangs, whereas William Marshall's Blacula and Christopher Lee's Dracula had the more common long canines, dentia which apparently made for messier blood-sucking. Hey, kids, Vampire Weekends is educational!
