Banshee

From the Irish 'bean si'
(or, woman of the 'side')
A female spirit that likes
to catch you with your
knickers down - for she's
a messenger like the
Grim Reaper - both, an
omen of death; and they
have both taken an encore
for appearing in a number
of different roles; but never
for situations in folklore;
They like to pick a family
member and 'attach'
themselves, kind of like
someone's mother-in-law;
After the 'attachment',
then come the cries -
heralding that someone
specials death; after
that, the wailing -
'harpooned' like a large
fish, cut-up into pieces
by the unholy sound;
This ghost is often a
specified murdered
woman, trying to find
her soul; Banshees are
described as being
dressed in funeral white
or gray, combing their
hair with a silver comb;
and if you should come
upon this comb lying on
the ground - 'Lacrimabilis
thema vivus bestia'.
