Chlamydia & Angina (The Dark Sisters Of Melincourt Falls) by Paul Tristram

On Autumnal & Wintering nights
but only upon Half Moons,
they work the bottom of the footpath.
The thunderous, crashing sound
of Sgwd Rhyd Yr Hesg
in the near background.
Helps to carry their inland Siren’s Song
far and wide down over the Valley.
They be out for tired travellers,
sleepwalkers from the nearby village.
Rabbit hunters & fishermen
who like a little bit on the side.
Karma steps happily into the arena
for the untrustworthy, unfaithful,
the homewreckers & heartbreakers.
And these Wraithlike Creature’s
aim is surgical, Vampiric
and merciless to a fault.
It takes hours up against the mossy rocks
for the tortured body to finally go limp.
At Dawn they find them hanging
from The Bloody Great Oak Tree.
Heart cut out, inserted up into their arse,
bowels rammed down choking throats.
Be careful when you wander too far
away from the warmth of homely hearth.
It’s said; it’s impossible to refuse their eyes,
unless your heart be mostly bright,
for they will not kiss a man of his word.
