Welcome to another edition of Horror Haikuesday, you guys keep rocking my week with your words.

First up, a deviously foul piece from the twisted mind of David Bradley Bailey (@Dbfuturist42) who’s collected works of #horrorhaikuesday and #folklorethursday are available now on Amazon.

The Prophet

Vlad Dracula and Mao both reveled
In the use of excrement to exacerbate
The stench and horror of their creative,
Unique, snowflake methods of execution.

The taste of waste on your tongue
Or smeared into the depths of your torn
Flesh is a new baptism beneath ideologues,
Demanding a perverse and pulsing loyalty.

Don’t think these visions are confined
To a past better forgotten or sealed
Within medieval woodcuts.
There are those circling as vultures

do…licking their lips at the prospect
Of power.

~Written by David Bradley Bailey
