As a kid, my mother told me, always in a drunken haze, a story before I went to bed. Not a lighthearted one, but devilishly twisted tales that led to my subsequent depression and withdrawal from society. They were always phrased as a poem, and one stood out above the others.
This is it.
Beautiful Betsy Brown,
Lived at Lucas's Lutheran Church.
One day she left with a frown
and walked with a lurch
All the neighbors watched in dismay.
Soon Betsy got sick,
and went to Lucas for a prayer.
With the swift hit of a brick,
No one would know of the affair.
Still the neighbors watched on the Lord's Day.
Betsy awoke under ten feet of dirt
and clawed her way through the mud.
With nothing on but a shirt,
the pastor still had never a dud.
The neighbors watched on like blue jays.
Her sickness had long gone
and her tears had fallen,
beautiful Betsy thought of a con
so the old man would fall in.
The neighbors watched on without any astray.
Betsy called out at the altar
covered now only in blood.
Not a single bone faltered,
for the whole congregation in her flood.
The neighbors watched on without any watching.
When Lucas entered
in fear he cries,
Because all of his people,
were left with no eyes.
My mom's name is Betsy.
