Cavalcade of Cliché, 17a

(A parade of words and phrases eligible for retirement.)

17. Necking 2

She awoke in the night to the flutter of wings—
And her heart fluttered too at the sound of such things.

So she thought, “It’s a bat that’s disturbing my night.”
In the morning her neck showed the marks of a bite.

Twas a pain in the neck—from a vampire, she guessed.
So she flew to join Dracula (permanent pest!).

Then she joined vampire flocks and she drank from the flood
Of their favorite drink—yes, those rivers of blood!
