The ScareCrow Blues by JasmineAlexandra The ScareCrow Blues by JasmineAlexandra
This is sort of like my version of a scarecrow against the human like demons… Out of all the creatures, this is the only one that truly frightens TwistedCupid. He does not seem to do anything but sing the blues on his acoustic guitar but it still drives a chill up all the creatures. He seemingly is neutral but he can be very frightening. Not even the scariest of monsters dare cross his path. He is the scarecrow to watch over the furry folks… but still if a folk does not heed his warning then they may find themselves on their own.
Yet if you offer him a smoke, he will keep an extra eye on you.
He does not hate the monsters but seem mellow about everything…
TwistedCupid always gets chills around him, not even drawing breath in his presence. She respects him though why he is so frightening is an odd mystery.

He is very cryptic & tells long tales that at first does not seem to have anything to do with the situation… at first.

He is a wise crow despite his lazy country drawl & his disheveled clothes. He is not vain. He is charming but frightening too…

Though his guitar looks beat up, it has known to play hypnotically. So beautiful & frightening…

(Verse One)
I know of sin by the things momma prayed
I know of heaven by the line at its gate
I know of truth and America's way
Come drink the water if you want to be saved

(Verse Two)
Don't drink the water if it's not from my stream
It's all still water if it's not flowing free
Don't drink the water at the watering hole
If you ain't got money, it can't save your soul

All God’s people said amen
All God's people said amen

(Verse Three)
It's not a sin if it can't make me cry
He's not the devil unless there's fire in his eyes
It ain't the ghost if it don't speak in tongue
It's not a victory 'till the battles been won

All God’s people said amen

(Verse Four)
Nobody prays unless they lose a son
Don't believe in God till a war's to be won
I know of truth by the lies I've been told
The biggest one is that we're not getting old

(Verse Five)
I know of sin by the things momma prayed
I know of heaven by the line at it's gate
Heard of a kingdom that's not far away
Come drink the water if you want to be saved

All God’s people said amen
