Folktober Challenge, Day 18

Inspired by F3.18, The Bell Witch

The Bell Witch

Why is one family tormented,
another blessed—

the sins of the father
manifested in bumps and tremors,

an unsettled spirit, settling scores.

Hold a bible, burn the witch,
the haunting goes on

as generations pass,
you wonder more

which came first,
a miasma of evil,
or corruption of the soul?

For Paul Brookes’ Folktober Ekphrastic Challenge. You can see the images and read the other responses here.
