Like Sci-Fi, Horror, Fantasy? I LOVE ‘em!!!
I like horror creeping behind me
I like fantasy dreams made true
I like sci-fi 'what if? maybe?'
I like them sprinkled with a joke or two.
I love the hairs on the back of my neck
standing to attention
when the shivers come to call
I love space-ships, strange new creatures
but I love laughter most of all.
So fill my head with stories
of things that never can be
or maybe could if only
we can learn to this or that.
Let my dreams fly upward
fed by wizard magickings
and rabbits from a hat.
Snowmen dancing, robots whinging
Jedi sabres singing their electric tunes.
There’ll never be a lover
who can tempt me ‘tween the covers
as much as HG Wells could
with his First Men on the Moon.
