Behold, A Pale Horse

A corpse is a corpse, of course, of course,
And no one can talk to a corpse of course
That is, of course, unless the corpse is the heinous Mister Dead.

    Weird, too. Delightfully so. I would love to know what inspired this…

    Hmmm. Kinda weird, but I may have had some conversations before with this pale horse…

    And now for the extended version…

    Go right to the source and ask the corpse
    He’ll make sweat come out of all your pores
    He’s always on a downward course
    Talk to Mister Dead.

    People yakety-yak a streak and waste your time of day
    But Mister Dead will never speak because you have nothing to say!

    A corpse is a corpse, of course, of course
    And you can stop beating this pale dead horse
    You never heard a talking corpse?
    Well, listen to this!
    I am Mister DEAD….
