    Default Stuffy Man

    Old words these are, and my apology if they should not be woken again, or if here be no good place to wake them. But All Hallows comes, and thus - the Stuffy Man.

    The Stuffy is a legend of a scare-field mannequin made of straw, that walks harvest nights seeking... well. Seeking. Hark - is that a knock you hear?



    Stuffy Man


    When the leaves are falling and the sharp point moon is high
    Then Stuffy Man goes walking, for those tides be Harvest Tide
    And if ye hear him knocking while ye snuggle in thy bed
    Then pull thy blanket closer, else ye'll wind up worse than dead


    The Stuffy Man be stuffy with the farmer's dried up store
    His head be old sack scruffy with a mouth and eyes of chalk
    The rags he wears be ragged from a year spent on the land
    But the moonlight dances new-bright on the sickle in his hand


    The Stuffy Man hath stuffy hands that knock upon each door
    But none will sleep the pounding from those hands made all of straw
    And if a woken answer with a door cast open wide
    Then sickle hand will fall and rend, for this is Harvest Tide


    The Stuffy hath no hunger, for it hath no need to eat
    But straw is dry and thirsty cries the one that seeks no meat
    The liquor for the Stuffy runs hot red in ye who wake
    And it will open any that it finds, its thirst to slake


    So when the leaves are falling and the sharp point moon is high
    And if ye hear a knocking when the stars are in the sky
    Set head beneath thy pillow, do not answer to thy door
    Else next year ye'll be knocking, and thy sack head made of straw!

    you can't cast a play in hell and expect angels as actors

    It's honoured I am, though beyond any merit I might ever have earned, by thy words .
