A twisted and devilish take on a classic nursery rhyme
|Mary had a little lamb,
that followed every move.
But Mary never saw her friend
or heard its cloven hoof.
This lamb would lurk in alleys dark,
its nature was to hide
behind the bushes in the park
or shadows by her side.
His goal was simple: steal her soul.
And so he stalked one day,
our little Mary straight to school
and watched her learn and play.
Then on recess, he made the move
to take her soul as His.
And with red wings and cloven hooves
He did the Devil’s biz.
