Sweet Christmas Hell
All us will say,
Throw cares away!
Christmas is near,
Bring holiday fear
To young and old
Snippets to be told!
Ding dong... ding dong
Horror we bring
One seems to hear
Screaming in fear
Filling the air.
Oh how spirits pound,
Raising the sound,
O'er hill and dale,
Telling their tale.
Gaily they write
Of people’s fright
Snippets of fear,
Christmas is here.
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,
Scary, scary, Scary, Scary Christmas.
We watch them feast upon the dead and wonder if our own corpse might be the next feast.
Though often minuscule in size, the fear that embodies us when seeing them can paralyze us.
And one bite can render a grown man dead in mere minutes.
In this collection you will find fictional stories of terror centering around bugs of all kinds including
A horde of termites overtaking a man’s body
A son watching his mother's mental health decline from dementia
A very special way to make honey
And many more creepy crawly stories guaranteed to remind all of us that if it were not for size; we would not be the dominant species upon this earth.
