by Kirsten Thompson
A is for Alaric, who put up a fight.
B is for Benjamin, who got a bad bite.
C is for Caroline who died in her bed.
D is for Damon, who his father shot dead.
E is for Emily who burned in a fire
F is for Frederick, who roused another’s ire.
G is for Gilberts, geeks or crazies, no doubt
H is for Honoria, who had her throat ripped out.
I is for Isobel, got a bad tan
J is for Jenna, met the wrong man.
K is for Katherine, forever on the run
L is for Liz, always carries her gun.
M is for Matt, hasn’t got a clue.
N is for extras, aka victims: new.
O is for Oleg, compassion he did lack,
P is for Pearl, stabbed in the back.
Q is for questions, ask a lot of,
R is for Rose, killed out of love.
S is for Sheila, whose magic burned out,
T is for Tyler, alive for another bout.
U is for uncertain, the next move of the writers
V is for vampires, who will always be biters.
W is for werewolves, who hate wolfsbane,
X is for xenophobia, to the Council’s gain.
Y is for yell for help, and is mostly a joke
Z is for Zach, who got his neck broke.
