Banshee

A. W. Nutter

Daughter of Satan and Jezebel
Obeying the wishes of her father
Sent from the fiery depths of hell
Issuing a decree for the Reaper

Reveling in the darkness
A soul, black as the night
Never seeking forgiveness
Announcing death, her delight

From the chalice of fear you sip
As you view this female demon
Incantations spewing from her lips
Summoning the ferryman, Charon

The Reaper suddenly appears
To harvest your evil spirit
Wipe away your foolish tears
Kingdom of hell, yours to inherit
