RIP Once and For All

People have done some pretty horrific things to their dearly departed to make sure that they would stay dead.

The most well known method involved spikes and stakes- and unlike the bodice ripping scenes lovingly embraced by modern day Vampire devotees, it seemed that the preferred method was to pry open your jaws and ram a  spike or rock into your mouth.

I’ve also heard they also buried some people face down so that in a frantic effort to escape from the grave to feed on their relatives, the Vampire would dig down and starve to death  ( again ) in the process.

So in itself, it’s an awful  that people were doing these things corpses.

Worse, they were not doing things thing to strangers or monsters that invaded their homes-

they were doing it to the people they knew and had loved.

 

Daily Post Prompt: Spike

Cut It Out Anita Marie

 

I enjoy

dark humor

gallows humor

whistling by graveyards

where I will

dance upon grave after grave

celebrating

Friday the 13th

Black cats and breaking mirrors

just to hear you scream:

Anita Marie… you’re a devil!

And I will take you hand and say as gentle

as a dry leaf landing on an dark lifeless street.

” I’m not a Devil, I’m the Devil and you’re my evening treat.”
