  • Into a sunken town, the Handsome Gambler ran. For he owed gold and

  • blood, and yet had none to spare. Desperate and forlorn, he was about to

  • change his path and walk away. When he heard a song that called on him, to

  • chance his luck again.

  • Now the singer was a creature, with the biggest mouth the Gambler had ever seen.

  • "Excuse my song," the monstrous siren said. "The tune’s purpose was your attention.”

  • "For I knew you had troubles and I can offer absolutions."

  • "Can you carry me from this bind?" the youth asked.

  • "Boy, the world's one river and I'm its king."

  • Ain't no place I ain't been. Ain't no place I can't go again.”

  • It ate the gifts, and house, and gold! For its hunger? Nothing satisfied.

  • "Please, not now, not this time!" the bride did cry.

  • The beast’s response? To her it purred, "This hunger’s a burden but it’s the

  • last time I swear. So please, forgive."

  • Now the creature's lies, so melodic and sincere, charmed that bride. And thus

  • she failed to recognize when that demon's jaw unhinged.

  • She screamed, just once. As I snapped her bones and crushed her limbs!

  • Now that meal? It left me satisfied.

  • So cry if you want boy, 'cause you had a chance to walk away.

  • Instead you're the fool, the fool who let me in.
