A is for Apocalypse

A’s the apocalypse, a dry, barren waste
B is for bombs, misfired in haste
C is for cyborgs, cold and unfeeling
D is the Doctor, with tales sending you reeling
E is “exterminate!”, a Dalek’s shrill cry
F is for forbidden fruits you’re denied
G is for gods, dead things of the past
without our worship, how long could they last?
H is for hopes: oh how ours were wrong
I is the id, and the monsters there-from
J is for jumping to hyperspace speeds
K is for Kirk with his alien needs
L is for luminous, a collection of tales
M is for mind control, when all else fails
N is for nothing: that which we most fear
O is for probes saying ‘we’re over here’
P is for punk, and the steam that goes with it
powering airships of steel and old rivets
Q is for asking the questions we fear
and hoping that answers to them don’t appear
R is for replicants, not wanting to die
S is something we make: strong ai
T is for telomeres, thwarting our cloning
U is the universe (something we’re alone in)
V is for vampires: a savage, cold breed,
bleeding us dry for our blood (which they need)
W is a werewolf, which howls in the nigh,
spreading the curse to each creature it bites
X is for xenomorphs and for xenologers
Y is for you: fighting for all of us
Z is for zombies, all rotten and pale
things to roam over the earth if we fail
