Headless Horseman

He flocks alone in the dark of night,

Chilling the townspeople with deathly fright.

A bloody stump atop a human body.

And his billowing cape, gory and gaudy

He’s come to steal you from your abode.

His black horse tearing down the country road.

Its hollow hooves beat pulpy ground.

And emits an awful shrieking sound.

All move at once to flee inside,

But little do they know

There’s nowhere left to hide.
