The Curse

The curse
Was born in darkness,
Struggled to get out,
Beat off light,
Grew wings and flew,
Screeched its name to the stars,
Forbade them enter its abode,
Grew terrible in its almightness,
Thundered across the valleys
Beat at the windows
The doors
The chimney breast,
Rattled and shook
The gratings round the man’s brain,
Supped on HER spirit,
Terrorised THEIR hearts
The little ones
All cuddly and goo,
Dark-spun in unspeakable fright
As the wind whipped up
And morals whipped down
And the man held an axe
And the woman

‘Do it!’
‘Do it!’-

And the curse stretched wide a grin
And the axe fell
And the woman screamed
And the madness flew
And oh! –
There was blood everywhere

And oh! –
There was blood everywhere

And only the curse left
So tiny in the daylight……..

‘Who could possibly have done this thing ?’ they wondered
Frightened by the improbability of it all

But the curse was already
Grinning its way

To another part of the world.
