They Won’t Stay Dead! 04

The first of tonight's Halloween offerings comes from The Guana Batz, while the second is a more metaphorical take on the subject from The Horrorpops.

Don't forget, Gentle Reader, that tomorrow night's will also be a Friday Night Is Music Night post; which would never be complete without suggestions from your good selves. For now though, I have to go. I need to exhume the body of Screamin' Lord Sutch at precisely midnight, for use in a ritual best left undescribed…

Upon His throne, the Lord was bored one Tuesday afternoon.
He looked for some amusement, to lighten up His gloom.
"Hey, Satan," He did boast in Lordly style. "See that chap with all the riches?

The Calvary Hill Square Dance

I was watching a documentary a while back in which the fact that some non-European civilisation or other (probably the Inca) practiced human sacrifice was expounded upon in such a way that we, the audience, were obviously supposed to be shocked out of our oh-so-civilised skins.
