Don't Ever Sass A Hoodoo Woman



33 words inspired by the zombie found by Zora Neale Hurston.

Don't you ever sass no
Hoodoo woman, child.
She drag you to your grave;
Throw you in, she will.
Then she dance
A happy jig,
Say your name
And have herself
A slave.

Okay, so this wasn't my original post for today.  Last night, I had a dream, and when I woke up, this was in  my head.  It's not my normal stuff, but who am I to argue with a Hoodoo woman?

  3. You nailed the southern thingy. I'm very careful who I sass AND it wouldn't be her. She makes me nervous! Well done...per usual!
