MARISHKA

MARISHKA WAS KNEELING ON A ROCK
AND SHE WAS COMBING HER BEAUTIFUL LONG HAIR.
WHEN SHE WAS THROUGH SHE STARTED TO CRY.
ALONG CAME UNCLE CHARLES
AND ASKED HER WHY SHE WAS CRYING.
HE TOOK OUT HIS GOLDEN KNIFE
AND STABBED IT IN HER HEART.
MARISHKA BECAME AN ANGEL, ANGEL, ANGEL
AND UNCLE CHARLES BECAME A DEVIL, DEVIL DEVIL.
