Once upon a time
On the assembly line
Ran my brilliant designs
Made of plastic
Then the factory called me
Said, “We are appalled, we feel
Your new designs are too drastic.”
What? Babies with buzz saws?
These bankers in charge,
They lacked vision and imagination.
Challenge me, will you? Well, I’ll show you all!
I’ll see to it this wretched company falls.
I’m not just some nobody here doing time
You fat bastards need me and my brilliant mind!
And so… they fired me.
And, all through the night
As I wept, I packed my explosives
And dollies with knives
And gasoline filled super-soakers
And deep within my mind
My revenge grew ever corrosive
I invaded the building with my army of toys
As a fire rang out with a deafening noise, I screamed
"I am the nightmare that crushes your dreams,
I’m the greatest creator this world’s ever seen!”
Cackle as the fire crackles
As the toys attack ‘em till they all fall down.
Climbing to the top, I hear a helicopter
Talking to me as the cops surround
Every corner of the factory,
Gasoline! It’s either them or me
It’s them or me!
All through the night
As I laughed, I set off my explosives.
But alas, I was detained
And they labeled me criminally insane.

This was an amazing project, and I got to do something really different. I hope you enjoy it :))
MYTHOLOGY MEME ~ [3/8] Legendary Creatures ~ Banshee
The banshee (from Irish: bean sí “woman of the sídhe” or “woman of the fairy mounds”) is a female spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the Otherworld.
In legend, a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die. In Scottish Gaelic mythology, she is known as the bean sìth or bean-nighe and is seen washing the blood stained clothes or armour of those who are about to die. (x)
