Haiku About Bela Lugosi As Count Dracula

He bids you velcome
And look he doesn’t drink wine
he prefers your blood

    Hey! I saw Peter Murphy (Bauhaus) on Saturday night in Oxford. “Bella Lugosi’s Dead!” – Excellent show – wish you had been there.

  2. Nicholas C. Rossis said,

    I love your haikus!

  3. Hyperion said,

    Another great Haiku. I see a book of haiku in your future. 🙂

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, I’ll have to publish a book of my haikus. 🙂

      • Hyperion said,

        And all the other books that have such promise. Don’t slow down. You are on a roll.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Of course in order to do that, I’ll need a laptop.

        I was forced to leave my Toshiba laptop behind in Vancouver because I couldn’t fit it into my suitcase.

        Well I could have if I had left a few family mementos behind.

        But I wanted to take them with me.

        I was already having to leave a lot of mementos behind anyways such as my dad’s oil painting collection, all his Encyclopedias and Dictionaries and his collection of Will and Ariel Durant’s Story of Civilization books as well as my own comic book and Sherlock Holmes book collection.

        If some of my so-called friends in Edmonton had offered to pay storage or transportation fees for them, I might have moved back to Edmonton instead of Calgary.

        But seeing as how they didn’t have much sympathy for people who fell on hard times through no fault of their own, they can stick their friendship where the sun don’t shine.

        I was quite literally having to leave Vancouver with only the shirt on my back not having been able to find a job there for 18 months.

      • Hyperion said,

        That’s very disturbing, Chris. By left behind, did anyone take your belongings in or did you just leave them in the apartment? We can’t demand the good will of others, my friend, nor can we trust our lives in the hands of others. It’s a major setback, but also liberating. Your life will go according to what you do. Everyone else is a member of the audience and we certainly do applaud your performances. But, in the end, it’s your performance that counts, not the audience’s. That’s the brutal truth I had to learn. You’ve learned it too. Before, not dropping the soap in the shower was a joke. Now you know it’s a reality and the soap probably has fingernail indentations on it due to the tight grip you’ve developed. I know you had a couple of leads for work. I do hope you can take advantage of those leads and find work. Collect new memories, my friend and let the others go. Easier said than done of course. I just don’t believe anything should come between you and the fame and fortune your potential alludes to.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I just left them in the apartment.

        I don’t know whether anyone took them in or not.

        I’m quite literally having to start again from scratch.

        Coming to Alberta where they have public health care (unlike Christy Clark’s British Columbia), a doctor has determined that I have severe clinical depression (which I always suspected when I was in Vancouver but never went to see a doctor since I’d have to pay for it myself ) and thus made me eligible for Alberta Social Services Health Benefits Housing and Income Support Program.

        Unfortunately they don’t pay very much for income support.

        My doctor hopes to get me on what they call AISH (Assured Income For The Severely Handicapped) where they do pay people an income they can live on.

        If I was a heavy boozer or heavy drug addict, I wouldn’t be able to live on it of course.

        But since I’m me, I could spend time writing and not having to worry about where my rent or meal money is coming from.

        Then I could finally write my best-seller and become a billionaire like J.K. Rowling and no longer live on AISH anymore.

        Then I could help out those who are truly down and out (and not bums who the reason they’re poor is because they’re drunks or drug addicts).

      • Hyperion said,

        I’m sure whoever went into the apartment considered everything abandoned and has sold your belongings for beer money and lived happily ever after. I was treated for clinical depression and PTSD as well. It took a year of chemotherapy and counseling but I was able to recover fully and continue my pursuit of Dragon Sisters. Which reminds me, I did an autobiography on my website. You’ll notice that me and Renfield have a lot in common. I’m a rascal too 😀 Just click on the menu button in the upper right and select Meet the Dragon Master for a quick romp through my life as a Dragon. At 61, I’m still farting loud and proud as Ben Franklin recommended.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I’ll check out your autiobio, Daniel. 😉

      • Hyperion said,

        I hope you aren’t traumatized by it. 😀

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        No, I’m not.

        I wore my X-Ray Ultraviolet Protective glasses when reading it.

        And drank plenty of Holy Water beforehand. 😀

      • Hyperion said,

        Excellent pre-planned personal protective posture my friend. You should have no ill effects. Although, you may feel the urge to go coconut spelunking. 😀

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, I was humming the tune to Noel Coward’s song What A Lovely Bunch of Coconuts when I was looking at a certain picture. 😀

      • Hyperion said,

        I think those coconuts were humming that same tune to me as well. 😀

    Brilliant! I actually recited this in a Transylvanian accent 😛
