"The Sea of Dead Children"
Margaret Jane died whilst in a slumber so deepTragically murdered in her bed as she was fast asleepShe opens her eyes with a fright, hoping it ‘twas just a dreamBut the water fills her lungs, drowning out her blood curdling scream
For if a poor child dies before the age of elevenThey don’t go to Hell, and they don’t go to HeavenThe Sea of Dead Children becomes their new homeUpon the ocean’s floor, their souls eternally roam.
The ghostly hands grip tight, pulling Margaret Jane downEven though she already died, her soul has to drown.Dead children are always excited to play with someone newSince the afterlife can be boring, so it’s something to do. :-)
Deeper and deeper she goes, into the dark depths of the seaTo play with every child who ever died, for the rest of eternity

"The Sea of Dead Children"

Margaret Jane died whilst in a slumber so deep
Tragically murdered in her bed as she was fast asleep
She opens her eyes with a fright, hoping it ‘twas just a dream
But the water fills her lungs, drowning out her blood curdling scream

For if a poor child dies before the age of eleven
They don’t go to Hell, and they don’t go to Heaven
The Sea of Dead Children becomes their new home
Upon the ocean’s floor, their souls eternally roam.

The ghostly hands grip tight, pulling Margaret Jane down
Even though she already died, her soul has to drown.
Dead children are always excited to play with someone new
Since the afterlife can be boring, so it’s something to do. :-)

Deeper and deeper she goes, into the dark depths of the sea
To play with every child who ever died, for the rest of eternity

And while you’re at it, consult our Halloween infographic to find out which literary costume YOU should rock this year.
