In Part Two of this Story.
Mawkin The Ruler of all the Scarecrows and Mommet
plus a Trusted Scarecrow Named Hylan.
Terrorised a Small Town in Victoria Australia.
A Town Named Talbot.
Another 25 Scarecrows were left behind up in the Hills.
With he promise that Human Flesh would be provided
But Mawkin went back on His Word.
And the 25 Scarecrows Died and reverted back to Everyday
Mommet was Jealous of Mawkins Status.
And He tried to Overthrow Mawkin.
But Mawkin got in first and ripped open Mommets Chest
And proceeded to Eat the still Beating Heart.
So now Mommet is now nothing more than a pile of Sawdust.
Hylan meanwhile has snuck into a Bedroom
And Impregnated a Seventeen Year Old Virgin.
The Virgin had a Dream that She had had Sex with Something
that looked like a Scarecrow
Could it be true?
Hylan also wonts to be the Ruler of all the Scarecrows
And seeing that Mawkin trusts Hylan
He doesn’t imagine any threat.
So Hylan is able to get up nice and close.
He pierces Mawkins Chest and rips out His Heart
But He makes a huge Mistake.
To Kill a Scarecrow you have to Eat the Heart while it is
But Hylan just threw the Heart to the Ground.
Now Mawkin is caught somewhere between Life and Death.
And He is Itching for Revenge.
Hylan caught a Bus to destination unknown
And Nine Months later the Virgin gave Birth to the first
Homo Scarecrowian Born on Earth.
A Mawkin is hovering in a Vortex of Destruction.
Now to Part Three.
Nine Hundred Kilometres away from Talbot.
Hylan is holed up in a Rundown Shack on the outskirts
He has Survived on Roadkill and the odd Wallaby.
Lately He has been thinking about the Virgin that He left behind
Plus the Baby Homo Scarecrowian.
So He Sits on the Floor of the Shack.
He crosses His Legs and starts to Chant.
‘This the Father of Your Baby
I am Hylan Ruler of all the Scarecrows
You are to come to Me immediately
Just pack a few things
And get here as fast as You can
I will guide You all the way
The Seventeen Year Old is sitting at Home Nursing
When She starts to Hear a Voice on the Wind.
She is Transfixed and straight away jumps to Her
Feet and starts to Pack.
She wraps Her Baby in a Shawl
And She Walks out of the Font Door.
She doesn’t even say Goodbye.
Her Name is Sara Jane and Her Baby is Named Pinochino
Because He is after al Half Scarecrow
All Wooden and stiff.
Sara Janes jumps on to a Bus that is heading North.
The Voice is telling Her which way to go.
So She relaxes and enjoys the Ride.
Even Pinnoch is Happy
He seems to know that He is going to see His Daddy.
500 Kilometres away a Black Crow is busy digging up
Worms and Grubs.
When He to Hears a Scarecrow Voice on the Wind
A Voice from the Past.
The Voice of His Nemesis.
With a flurry of Wings
The Black Crow Screeches at the Sky
Then He Twirls around like a Tornado
And from the Eye of that Tornado
A Seven Foot Winged Scarecrow emerges.
Mawkin is back from the almost Dead.
Now He just has to follow that Voice.
And Hylan will Die an Agonising Death.
Sara Jane and Pinnoch are close to Their Destination
The Voice tells Them
‘Get off the Bus at the Intersection right near an old Garage
Walk down the Gravel Road and I will be waiting’
Hylan is Sitting on the Back Porch Channelling His Thoughts
He knows that Sara Jane and Pinnoch are very close
He Sits there Scratching His Stubble that is full of Splinters
He likes having People in the Palm of His Hand
So He starts to Chant again.
‘People this is your Prophet Hylan come and join Me
You can be my Disciples and I will show you the way
So leave now and join Me in the Promised Land
Just listen to the Wind and follow My Words’
Mawkin is also listening to the Wind
He is getting closer to His revenge
So He keeps on listening to Hone in on the Location
Then He takes to the Wing with a Smile on His Beak
The People of Wangaratta are just going about Their Day
The vulnerable among Them start to Listen to a Voice
mingling in the Leaves.
A Voice that draws them in like a Moth to a Flame.
Sara Jane is walking down the Gravel Road carrying Pinnoch
Part of Her Brain is telling Her to Run like Hell
But She cant resist the Power of the Voice
So She keeps on Walking.
She is soon joined by Twenty Others
And when She looks over Her Shoulder
Thirty more are close behind.
They all Walk forward in a Trance
Like the Condemned going to the Guillotine
Like Lambs to the Slaughter.
Hylan Stands on His Front Porch watching all the People
Sara Jane and Pinnoch are in are in the lead closely followed
by One Hundred vulnerable Locals.
He steps forward to take Pinnoch from Sara Jane
He is as proud as Punch.
The one and only Homo Scarecrowian on Earth.
And He is My Son.
Sara Jane and the Locals all mill around in Confusion
Then Hylan hols out His Hands to welcome the Converts
into the Fold
A Hush falls over the Crowd as Hylan Speaks
‘Welcome to My Commune
I am Hylan Ruler of all the Scarecrows
I am Your Saviour Your guiding Light
Trust Me and I will show You the way to a better Place’
The Humans are Stupified
What is all this Talk about Scarecrows?
Then They all kook at the Master and They notice His Wooden
Then They See His Razor sharp Teeth
And His long Finger Nail Claws
They Thought They were on their way to the Promised Land
But They have all arrived in Hell
If only They knew what Hylan has install for Them
They are not to be His Subjects or His Disciples
They are nothing more then Hylans Food Supply
They will all be Consumed so that the Homo Scarecrowians
can grow and prosper
Just then a single Black Crow Lands on a nearby Tree
Mawkin has arrived to regain His Crown
He looks to the Heavens spreads His Wings and Screeches
at the Sky.
All of the Clouds turn Black and nasty
The Air is charged with Ions
But there is no Storm on the way
The Sky is Black for another Reason
Forty Thousand Black Crowes have gathered at Mawkins
Then Mawkin points His Wings to the Ground
And Screams like a Banshee
The Forty Thousand Black Birds Dive down on to the Humans
Then They start to Peek and Claw in a vicious attack
The Hundred Humans below don’t stand a chance against
Forty Thousand crazed Birds.
And soon they are decimated.
Body parts are torn off and carried away
One Hundred Human Beings have just been Slaughtered
in this Godforsaken Place.
Hylan Stands there watching the Carnage take place
His Food source no longer Exists.
He knows that Mawkin is here
And this time He wont Run.
He will Stand and Fight.
But He can barely react when He is set upon
Mawkin has Transformed into the Seven Foot Winged
Mawkin and Hylan Fight Claw and Tussle for Life or Death
For over Thirty Minutes They Fight
They are both covered in Cuts and Blood
Then Hylan feels mawkins Claws enter His Chest
His Ribcage is Torn apart
His Heart is removed from His Body
Hylan can only Stand there and watch as Mawkin Eats His
Still Beating Heart
Then He falls Dead to the Ground.
Mawkin is disappointed He expected more of a Fight
It just goes to show that He is the True Leader of all the
Hylan was nothing more than a pretender
Now He is nothing more than a dried out Husk
A Tumble Weed blowing in the Wind.
Mawkin is still Basking in the Glory.
So He doesn’t notice the Black Crowes that have mistaken Him
And They converge en masse
Mawkin can do nothing as a Thousand Black Birds Consume
His Wooden Body.
Limb by Limb
Splinter by Splinter
In the Shack Jane has Her Hands over Pinnochs Eyes
It is like She is Living in a Horror Movie
She sits there for a couple of Days
Waiting and hoping that the Black Birds have gone away
She looks out of the Window.
And there isn’t a Bird in sight
She leaves Pinnoch laying on the Bed
And steps Outside to have a Look around
But She has taken a few too many Steps
When One Hundred Black Crowes descend
They have been Smelling Her Sweat and Fear
Just waiting for Her to step Outside
Sara Jane senses
the danger but just a little too late
Before She can reach the safety of the Shack
The One Hundred Black Crowes are on Her
Thankfully Sara Jane is dispatched quickly
And within an Hour She is Picked Clean.
The only thing left behind is Her Bones
Inside the Shack Pinnoch begins to Cry
And He Cries and Cries for Hours
His Whimpers are heard by a passing Dingo
Who Walks straight in the Door Sniffing the Air
He Walks straight up to Pinnoch
And lifts Him up by the Back of the Neck and
Will Pinnoch Survive?
Does the Dingo Eat the Baby?
