Death's Sweet Lullaby
Author: Mike

vinebar

"Come little children, I'll take thee away,
Into a land of enchantment.
Come little children, the time's come to play
Here in my garden of magic."*

A land where tears are no more.
Where joy and laughter reign supreme.
Where smiles are the order of the day.
Where the cat always gets the cream.

Where sorrow is always left behind,
And sadness is shown the door.
Where blood stays flowing in your veins
And not dripping over the floor.

"Come little children, I'll take thee away,
Into a land of enchantment.
Come little children, the time's come to play
Here in my garden of magic."

A land of no suffering, no tears, no pain.
A world of peace and fun.
A universe of joyful spirits,
A place where you can unload the gun.

It's so easy to get here.
A slit of the wrists will do.
One simple cut, all will be yours.
Happiness will finall come to you.

------- Author's Notes -------

"Come little children, I'll take thee away,
Into a land of enchantment.
Come little children, the time's come to play
Here in my garden of magic."

I watched "Hocus Pocus" for the umpeenth time a couple of days ago, and it got me thinking.. The song that the witch Sarah sings to draw to children to their death, maybe that has a hidden meaning somewhere? So I thought about it, and this is what I got.. The verse above is from the film itself, but the rest is from my mind.
