Go For The Heart

“It is impossible to say how first the idea entered my brain; but once conceived, it haunted me day and night.”

Edgar Allan Poe, The Tell-Tale Heart

“How was your driving lesson, honey?”
“I still can’t get the stake through the ribcage, Dad.”

“Count Vampire!?!”
“No, I said Wampyr.”
“Oh, okay.”

The original name of Count Dracula in Bram Stoker’s famous book was Count Wampyr.

My heart stopped beating. I must find one that lasts longer than a week.

I found a book of witchcraft
Abandoned by the side of the road
An edition written for dummies
Under the watchful eye of a toad

In croaks of English of old
It warned me against reading the book
Therein lies the problem
The warning made me more curious to look

To make a long story short
There was a typo in the immortality spell
Something along the lines of:
“Walk the endless TOAD, wave death farewell”

over time
hearts and minds
grow to fear
Even the wise
And well intentioned

The word “witch” comes from the Old English wicce, meaning “wise woman.” In fact, wiccan were highly respected people at one time.
