    A dark night, ominous fog, a sense of mounting fear... Suddenly, a shadow falls across your path,  Shadow of Fu Manchu! Created by writer Sax Rohmer, the sinister criminal mastermind is one of the most memorable villains in literary history, personifying the fascination and fear with which many Westerners viewed the cultures of the Far East at the turn of the 20th century. After appearing in a popular series of novels and short stories, Fu Manchu came to radio in 1939 in a series which many consider one of the best adventure serials ever produced.

    These poems were mostly written in 1987 while recovering in Clifton, Bristol, in England. It heralded the start of a huge change for me, and I felt broken. The love of my life had just come to a messy end, and I’d been hitting the LSD too hard. Things felt beyond my control, and I now had to learn how to wait out the wounds for the first time. I began to write, to compensate for the anxiety and emotional state that I was struggling with. 
     
     Bullets of Madness 
     
    I’m standing awaiting
    caught in commotion
    as the voices call through a veil
     
    I hear them and fear them
    even need rescuing
    they make me aware of the nail
     
    that drives through our senses
    when alone it commences
    to obsess me in sweet delusions
     
    the nail it pierces
    my heart as it fleeces
    the last of courage from my mansion
     
    as I tasted the apple
    I quaked and my rattle
    fell out from my innocent hand
     
    I learnt of your lessons
    obeyed your deceptions
    and was made to fit into your plans
     
    and now I can feel
    the noise of the void
    as the motion slows to a halt
     
    feels like I’m dying
    I’m scared of trying
    to make sense just to please them all
     
    I was shot down
    as the black limousine
    slowed to a glistening halt
     
    the devil climbed out
    his gestures obscene
    my fears all came bleeding out
     
    I knew he would laugh
    as I fell to the ground
    he had won the final bout
     
    shot with bullets of madness
    or bullets of sadness
    my heart ached ‘til it wanted to stop
     
    I can’t understand you
    my mind burns with fire
    I always just wished to belong
     
    alone is no home
    just broken desire
    I’ve been shot down for being in love

    A poem for Halloween by the 17th century English author Robert Herrick.  His poems were not widely popular at the time they were published. His style was strongly influenced by Ben Jonson, by the classical Roman writers, and by the poems of the late Elizabethan era. This must have seemed quite old-fashioned to an audience whose tastes were tuned to the complexities of the metaphysical poets such as John Donne and Andrew Marvell. His works were rediscovered in the early nineteenth century, and have been regularly printed ever since. (Summary by Wikipedia)
