If you peek where a corpse decomposes
It will reek, so of course hold your noses
In this box, mutely rests
The most noxious of pests,
An old freak named Count Orlok, who dozes.

Thomas Hutter (Gustav von Wangenheim) opens the coffin of Orlok (Max Schreck) in Nosferatu, a Symphony of Horror (F. W. Murnau; 1922). Title by David "Nosegay" Cairns.
