Jack Fear (title)

Jack Fear (illustration)
Day or night
You’ll feel his bite
He’s always out, dispensing fright
Casts his dart
With cunning art
To lodge its ice within your heart
Here a sliver
For a shiver
There a splinter for a quiver
Sometimes more
A scary score
To chill you, nil you, to the core
Then Jack Fear
Sidles near
To whisper slyly in your ear
Oh, such words
So softly purred
As make all hopes and dreams absurd
