On a Cold Dark Night


   Rory awoke with  the zings’ and immediately ran for the toilet. He and his fellow officers had drunk in the dead of night till the dark shadows of the evil Twilight zone surrounding them were conquered. All this running and hiding from Betty Lou’s ice age monsters was wearing them all down. 

      He looked outside to see —

Not a speck of light is showing

So the danger must be growing                                                                                             Are the fires of Hell a–glowing                                                                                                    Is the grisly reaper mowing                                                                                                                   Yes, the danger must be growing   

      The night stalkers Purple People Eater and Trilobites prowled round the police hideout. Their gigantic wings stir up tornadoes of wind driven objects into the air striking everything in site. And with deadly intent they blew long fiery blasts into the Black veil of night. The woman in black watched gleefully the fiery war in the air around her. 

     The war was intensifying. And all the police squad could do was watch.  Pecorino Romano joined Rory at his watch station. He was eating an icecream cone of all things. Rory stared at the man and exclaimed: “At a time like this you can eat?”

      Ten thousand tons of ice cream if i could’,  replied Romano. “There is a Dairy below us grinding the stuff out as fast as it can.”

     Harry sat up upon hearing the men . “Hmm, we have a dairy here. Maybe we can beat Betty Lou after all.” he thought. 

       “Romano! Show me this Dairy.”  he said as he picked himself up. “ The black widow is in for a frosty treat. That Devil’s bride shall bath in icy favors instead of dragon’s breath bar-b-que. Hurry now we’ve little time left”  

       “On a Cold Dark Night ” he breathed. “I’ve found the answer to this devil’s curse. And chased after Romano humming ‘Me And My Shadow’.
