The Crime of the Ancient Mariner

A creature climbs out of the hold
His features cause fraus to grow cold
To the deckhands' surprise,
This old wreck never dies
A leech that's a thousand years old.

Max Schreck as Count Orlok in Nosferatu, a Symphony of Horror (F. W. Murnau; 1922).
Title by ancient rhymer David Cairns.
