Modern Mother Goose-On The Loose # 768 (Goodbye Barnabas Collins)


To rush home from school-

Was a major golden rule.

.

For the favorite show would be on-

You know about the one that had to

be in by dawn.

.

The scary music, the strange scenario-

When I got home, I knew where to go.

.

In front of the TV with the rabbit ears-

Usually at the thought of a vampire, there

are many fears.

.

But, in the case of Barnabas Collins, the idea

was sought-

That he could keep his secret, that he wouldn’t

get caught.

.

For he was a likable fellow, despite what he had

become-

Maybe not too all, but a plentiful sum.

.

We looked forward to the night, as it was when-

He would make his appearance, and come out

of his coffin.

.

That was many years ago, but the memory is still

vivid-

Of Mr. Jonathan Frid, playing Barnabas Collins,

quite livid.

.

To rush home from school-

Was a major golden rule.
