My Neighbor's Cleaver
My neighbor said,"anyone that trespasses on my land will be killed by my cleaver."
But everyone scoffed, and dared not believe her
though a new salesman, new to our town
Who went by the name of Isaac Martin Brown
Was said to have gone to her house to sell some new bread
And was never seen again, but in ghost form with a cleaver in his head
Still folks around town joked, but it wasn't a fable
Caught on her property you'd be dead as my cousin Maybel
Some believed she slept with her cleaver on her nightstand
That way if anyone came, she would have it at hand
How she lived and what she did was a mystery
For all were afraid that if they entered they'd be history
Well it all ended one night with a scare
A poor schoolboy went there on a dare
After a month of not being found
A search party found them BOTH on the ground
The friends who dared, asked,"why did he die"
The detective said,"to die of a heart attack he must have been one scared little guy"
Whether the cleaver was used as a weapon or not
was proven by Mr. Don Pott
Who said,"the woman died of old age no doubt
Now go away, we must get these dead bodies out!"
That is the story of my neighbor, now deceased
All I hope now is that she and him both rest in peace
Think it is dumb to die just from seeing a rotting corpse?
Trust me, if you saw my neighbor there you'd' drop dead too, of course!
As for the cleaver, who knows?
And every day the mystery grows
