RING A RING A ROSIES

- surely wearing it around my neck, will help keep evil at bay

- as I wade through sludgy darkness, fear has my knees give way

A POCKET FULL OF POSIES

- was told to keepit near,posies deflect all harm

- thy eery presence drawing me in, willing to your charm

- standing right in front of you, your eyes a glaring red

- how I now wish I'd listen, when I was able to; just fled

ASHES TO ASHES

- your bony fingers reach inside; excruciating pain

- all your seeming sweetness disappeared, your hatred leaves a stain

WE ALL FALL DOWN

- you have taken what you wanted

- in life we will never find

- but perhaps in death there might be

- light for hearts left behind
