Dracula - "WELCOME TO MY WORLD!"

 

TRANSYLVANIA TIDBITS

 

In searching on the internet for a poem about the Transylvania blood-sucker, I stumbled across the following by children’s authors Jack Prelutsky and Robert Pottle. I hope these Dracula ditties put a smile on your face… and a bite on your neck :-D

 

 

When Dracula Went to the Blood Bank
By Jack Prelutsky

 

When Dracula went to the blood bank,
he thoroughly flustered the staff,
for rather than make a donation,
he drew out a pint and a half.

 

 

My New School

By Robert Pottle - 2006

 

My teacher looks like Dracula.

We learn of blood and bats.

The playground's home to toads and trolls,

lizards, newts and rats.

 

The nurse claims she can raise the dead.

The janitor's a ghost.

The cook looks like Medusa

serving toe-jam spread on toast.

 

The scary secretary

starts each morning with a, "BOO!"

The principal is Frankenstein --

a grad from Scary U.


The kids are little monsters

I really don't fit in.

I don't have fangs or pointy claws

or warts upon my chin.

 

And cause I am so different

my classmates call me dummy.

So, I'll dress up tomorrow

as a toilet paper mummy.
