Did you see the wolf moon rise?
Dazzling watchers of the winter skies.
Did you feel your blood turn chill?
As a full moon rose over snow-capped hill.
Did you hear the howling in the night?
A blood curdling scream to give a fright.
Did you hear that panting like a pack of dogs?
Or wolves, or demons, or perhaps, hedgehogs.
Your imagination just runs wild.
As the fears return you had as a child.
“Get a grip,” you say out loud.
As the wolf moon dips behind a cloud.
No such thing as werewolves, that rip you limb from bowel.
I always get this feeling as I howl, howl, howwwwwllllll!
